A man who was reportedly angry with people driving too fast while his children played outside is facing charges after allegedly threatening people with a baseball bat last Sunday, June 9.

Police were called to Kensington Drive at 8:27 AM when a neighbor reported seeing Robert J. Rogers, 43, threatening people who were driving past his home. When police arrived, they reported seeing Mr. Rogers carrying the bat.

According to the police report, Mr. Rogers told police that his wife had confronted a driver about driving too fast along the road while the children were playing in the yard and on the street. When the conversation between his wife and the driver became heated, Mr. Rogers allegedly grabbed the bat to “defend his family.”

Witnesses described seeing Mr. Rogers wielding the bat in a threatening manner toward people driving in the area.

Mr. Rogers was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and assault with a dangerous weapon.
