A 35-year-old Spring Hill man faces aggravated assault and weapons charges after threatening his neighbor with a shot gun within 1,000 feet of JD Floyd K-8 on Friday, deputies said.

Andrew Roscillo, 14482 Cornado Dr., knocked on his neighbor’s door with a loaded shotgun around 8 p.m. and began screaming about the neighbor’s daughter cutting his grass, according to an arrest report from the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.

The neighbor told authorities he was in fear for his life and called 911, the report said.

Deputies found Roscillo walking around his backyard with the shotgun in his hand, according to the report.

Deputies arrested Roscillo and found three rounds in the shotgun, including one in the chamber, the report said.

Roscillo referred to himself as a superhero and said he was protecting his mother from the neighbors who cut their grass, according to the report.

Because the incident occurred within 1,000 feet of the school, Roscillo also faces charges of possessing a weapon near school property.

Roscillo was taken to Hernando County Detention Center and was being held on $7,000 bond.
