Abrams has been accused of firing off a flamethrower to win the argument recently.   

On November 30, the Gainesville resident allegedly aimed flamethrower at three teenagers after he got enraged over a dispute about the parking habits of his neighbours, a local report said.  

According to the legal documents, Abrams now faces three counts of felony for the aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intention to kill.  

A mother of one of the teenagers, who was involved in the incident, spoke out about the alleged assault.

Earlier in December, bond for Abrams was set at $15,000.
