(RNN) - A property dispute turned ugly last month.

A 72-year-old Florida man chased his neighbor with a tractor and yelled “run, fat a**,” according to WJXT.

Howell Morris faces a third-degree felony charge for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.

The victim’s wife recorded the June 19 incident and called 911. Deputies released the audio of the 911 call on Monday.

911 Dispatcher: "And when you say he came after your husband with his tractor, did he chase him down?"

911 Caller: "Yeah. He chased him down on his tractor and my husband had to run, yes."

St. John's County Sheriff's deputies reviewed the video, which led to Morris' arrest. He was released the next day after posting bond.

Court records show Morris has been ordered not to contact the victim.
