CAMAS, Clark County (AP) — Police say a Camas man who painted the fire hydrant in front of his house red became angry about a note from the water department that said it should be yellow, like all the other hydrants in the city.
Police say the 54-year-old man who found the note was drinking Monday and decided to confront the city employee who left it. He took a gun and went to the employee’s house.
Witnesses called police to report two men fighting and a gun on the ground. No shots were fired, and no one was seriously injured. Officers arrested the man with the red fire hydrant for investigation of assault.
