Matter of record — A deputy was dispatched to Butter Blount Road in Fleming, where reports indicate neighbors bicker frequently and cannot get along. This time, one of the residents complained about neighbors driving four-wheelers around 10 p.m. The riders insisted that Sheriff Steve Sikes and other deputies had given them permission to drive the four-wheelers as late as they wanted as long as they remained on private property, though the report indicates the deputy observed young adults and juveniles riding the ATVs in the road.
