Glenwood man accused of driving front-end loader at neighbor

Arthur Hood, 64, of Glenwood was arrested last week for allegedly attempting to run over his neighbor with a skid-steer front-end loader.

Doug Wilkening told police that he had observed Hood moving dirt in front of Wilkening’s driveway around 4:15 p.m. Sept. 13, Hood’s arrest affidavit reports. Wilkening said his shout of “hey” prompted Hood to make eye contact, turn around and drive toward him.

“Doug said that if he had not moved Arthur would have driven right over him,” the affidavit reads.

Wilkening sustained a minor laceration and bruising in the incident. He further indicated that Hood had also threatened to run over his son.

When police contacted Hood, he refused to speak with them. He was arrested for felony menacing, third-degree assault and reckless endangerment. He was released the next day on a $3,750 bond.
