An argument between neighbors over driveway access quickly escalated from horn honking, to a battery, to tires being punctured at a McKenna Blvd. apartment complex this morning. 

It started when a woman was trying to get to her garage. She couldn't maneuver her car up the driveway, because her neighbor's SUV was blocking the way – with her neighbor also behind the wheel.

There was an exchange of horns followed by some heated words. The two women got out of their vehicles with the SUV driver punching the other woman twice in the face, breaking her glasses. The injured woman reached out and ripped a hair extension from her neighbor's head. As this was happening, a third neighbor came out to break up the disturbance.

She was successful. However, the woman who had been the recipient of blows was still upset. She decided to further retaliate by going into her apartment and getting a kitchen knife. She used it to puncture two of the SUV's tires.

The MPD arrived and both of the women were arrested.
