FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A Fairfield man who got in a heated verbal dispute with a neighbor over a fence between their homes on Sunday afternoon was charged with second-degree breach of peace, police said.

Jason Shay, 36, of Alberta Street, who had been warned not to go on his neighbor’s property after an Oct. 13 incident, took some cement pieces left after the fence was erected and put them in a dumpster on the woman’s property, police said.

Shay and the neighbor have had other dustups. The Oct. 13 incident stemmed from Shay arguing that the neighbor’s contractor parked his vehicle on Shay’s Belgian block border and left debris from construction, police said.

The victim signed a written statement in that incident, leading to the officer’s warning to stay off the victim’s property, police said.

Shay admitted to both putting the cement pieces in the dumpster and calling his neighbor names, police said.

Shay was released on a promise to appear in court on Nov. 20.
