Springfield – Ward 6 Alderman Cory Jobe is accused of battery.
Police reports show a neighbor confronted Jobe over a fence that was torn down. The argument got heated then the woman claims Jobe pushed her down.
Jobe, however, says it was a misunderstanding.
He says he was going to the alley to put out garbage and she was in the way of the fence, so he opened the gate and she fell down. Police say between the two addresses there have been 11 service calls in the past five years.
