My question involves personal property located in the State of: Missouri
My friend‘s neighborhood has a trail and its entrance is in a culdesac. Me, him, and maybe two or three other people like to get into my car to drive to the other side of the neighborhood to use said trail. I parallel park my car with the right wheels by the curb and always make sure I’m not blocking a driveway, mailbox, sidewalk, fire hydrant, etc. No music being blasted, no drugs, nothing other than a group of friends parking to skate on a trail.
There’s a family(mom,dad,son) who’s property ends about 10-15ft away from my car. They all have called me names, threatened to hurt me and my friends, and threatened to vandalize my car. They claim that we’re going to the trail to commit crimes and that I’m parking illegally, which is completely false.
They called Platte County Sheriffs claiming that I drove my 4.7 thousand pound, top heavy car around the small culdesac in the rain at over 25 mph and said I was doing drug-related business, when really I was waiting for another friend’s dad to get home so my friend could come hang out and if I went that fast around the culdesac I would’ve either tipped over or slid off the road. The sheriffs let us go after searching and not finding anything illegal.
Is parking in a friend’s public neighborhood’s public culdesac illegal? Can I report them for harassment if I collect proof of the threats they’ve given to us and my property?
