WYLIE (CBSDFW.COM) – A Wylie man who was arrested for closing the door on a mortgage inspector is facing an assault charge after kicking the inspector off his property.
“They treated me like I was a murderer,” said Calvin Davis.
Davis said an inspector from his mortgage company named Christopher Bourland was out making sure his windows and roof were repaired after suffering hail damage from an April storm. But the two men started arguing about a damaged AC unit and Davis told the inspector to leave his home.
“He’s the stranger in my house. I asked him several times to leave,” said Davis.
But Bourland refused to leave, according to Davis so he closed and locked the door.
Wylie police were called, and according to them, officers found a red mark on the inspector’s back.
“How can that door hurt somebody. If I would have hit him that hard, don’t you think that glass would have broke?” questioned Davis.
But Bourland who’s pressing charges, said Davis did not give him a chance to leave.
Bourland said David was yelling and cursing at him and forcibly smacked him with the door.
“I had to cancel a couple of appointments and I was in pain all day. I can’t cancel, that’s my livelihood,” said Bourland.
The pain Bourland said, felt like he was read-ended in a car wreck. He thinks if Davis felt so threatened, he should have handled it another way like calling the cops.
“To assault me to my face, I can at least defend myself. To assault me on your way out when your back is turned, to me, that’s a coward move,” said Bourland.
Davis said he has no regrets and looks forward to fighting it in court.
“I don’t need this on my record. I’m 51. I’ve been clean this long, why should I get in the system now?” questioned Davis.
Wylie Police said it is considered an elevated assault since the officers found an injury, the red mark, on the inspector’s back.
A court date is pending.
