I am a mobile home park manager. I have a past tenant that got evicted from his sub-letter, on my behalf. He causes lots of troubles here and has threatened the office personnel with bodily harm, threatened my maintenance man with death wishes, lies on other people causing trouble in the park. I have called police on him twice, they say there's nothing I can do until I file a trespass form. The officers told me to go to magistrate court to file against him. Magistrate Court said they don't do that, the DA office said they don't do it, the Sheriffs office don't do it. So, please tell me what I need to do to stop this unhealthy hot head from his threats and off our property and prevent further threats and or issues? We've ask him not to come back to our office & to not call us. He continues to harass us and stop in to argue or call my cell phone. I made a police report when he threatened us in the office telling the police officer, I wanted to press charges. He took the report supposedly and told me the courts would contact me for a court hearing date. This has been months and when I ask the DA office, they said that's not how it happens. Please help me in this matter
I suggest that you, as the manager, contact the owner of the park and advise him or her of the problems they will probably have if they do not deal with this issue properly. The owner should have a business attorney who can take care of this situation and see to it that a notice against trespass is issued and served. I suggest you continue to call the police each and every time he steps foot on the property or makes a telephone threat.
