The victim says it's a case of revenge.

News10NBC first showed you the security camera footage on October 25. A viewer recognized the man spraying the chemical and contacted the newsroom. We told the viewer to contact RPD. He did and Mr. Dalberth was ticketed Thursday.

When our viewer called us about Mr. Dalberth, we shared the information with the homeowner. She immediately remembered him as the person she hired to plow her driveway in 2016. She said she fired him for bad service, demanded money back and filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. A year and a half later, security camera footage shows Mr. Dalbert was back on her property killing her lawn with a chemical.
