Michael Hayes, a real estate investor, posted a video on YouTube of a woman harassing him and threatening him because she didn't want him in the neighborhood. "No, no. He can take his time", she said, the male officer was in agreement with her stance.

"The neighbor ran outside as I was removing the board from the door of the vacant house".

Hayes said he showed the woman proof that he was supposed to be in the house, but it wasn't good enough and she called the cops on him.

'I very calmly explained to her that I have a contract on the house and was there to do my inspection. "I showed her my business sign that I place in the yards of vacant properties so people will no (sic) why I am there".

Police arrived on the scene and threatened the angry lady with jail time if she continued to harass him.

He said she also lied and claimed she knew the owner.

'She also lies and says she knows the owner and he doesn't want anyone in his house although I also have a written statement allowing me to enter the house, ' Hayes said.

He explained to the officer who he was and why he was there. 'I keep my business cards on me.

Hayes said another officer drove up and another neighbor, a man, walked up to see what was going on.

At one point in the video, Hayes pointed out to the officers that he was recording the encounter on his phone.

"You keep the camera rolling", said one of the officers.

The woman tells the officers that he can do his job - but then she glares at him and tells him, "Hurry up, do it, and get out!"

"I'll call you as soon as I have a problem!"

But that didn't affect the bigoted woman as she boasted of being friends with the sheriff.

"I don't care if you're friends with the president", he says back to her.

'Just go in there and do what you gotta do and hurry up. "If you try to do anything to stop him, I'm going to take you to jail". The cops seemed sympathetic to what he was saying and asked the neighbor to just let Hayes do his job.

He then thanked the officers for helping him out and sticking up for him.

WMC Action News 5's Janice Broach spoke with Tiffany Albert, the neighbor in the video, for her side of the story.
