Resident Parking Lot Fight Leads to Arrest

Posted by Shawna Ivy on August 24, 2020

What’s happening at your property when you’re not there?

In this video, a physical altercation broke out just after midnight in the parking lot of a Houston apartment community. A small crowd of people stood by as two individuals began shoving each other.

Moments later, several of the individuals approached a white pickup truck that had driven up. It appeared the driver was having a verbal exchange with someone in the group. The truck started to drive away, dragging the man with it. He slowly got up and took a swing at someone else. This was all seen by one of our Stealth security operators who activated an on-site speaker warning and contacted local police.

The brawl continued until police arrived. Officers placed one suspect inside their vehicle. A fire truck arrived shortly after.

Managing Resident Issues

Night after night we hear stories about altercations taking place in apartment parking lots.

Even with background checks and verified references, it’s nearly impossible to prevent conflicts between your residents. You hope that minor disputes can be resolved with mediation, reason and perhaps an enforcement of the lease agreement. However, sometimes things can escalate to violence and more serious threats.

No one wants to live where they don’t feel safe. If crime and violence are common occurrences at your property, you run the risk of scaring away current residents, as well as not being able to attract new one. Both of with can affect your bottom line.
