WHITE HOUSE, Tenn. -

An argument over leaves turned into an armed standoff with police in Robertson County Thursday evening.

Police responded to a home at the intersection of Kennedy and Hamlett drives just off Highway 76 in White House around 4 p.m.

According to Smokey Barn News, there was a dispute between neighbors because one of them found leaves on his car and claimed the other neighbor put them there.

The argument was verbal until Billy Frizzell, one of the neighbors, pulled out a pistol and fired at least one shot into the ground. 

Frizzell then went into the house and stayed there for hours.

A SWAT team was called, along with Sumner County emergency responders.  The neighbor eventually surrendered shortly before 7 p.m.

No one was injured.

Frizzell, 50, was charged with aggravated assault and booked into the Robertson County jail on $5,000 bond.

Frizzell's elderly mother was in the home during the standoff. She was not charged.
