A Tucson contractor who was rebuilding homes damaged by the Aspen Fire allegedly threatened to use a tractor to run over a competing contractor, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report stated.

The alleged victim contractor told deputies that he was telling the employees from the other contracting company to leave the site when one of them drove a steam shovel at him.

Employees from both contracting companies told deputies that there have been disagreements and arguments in the past between the company's employees.

One employee said that employees from the other company have parked their cars in areas that interrupted the construction process for competing companies.

Deputies told the men that detectives may be investigating the incident further.
