4. I need more information

Was the son cutting his dad's lawn? Did he just sneak over and do a vigilante mow job?

Maybe his dad is part of the local "lawn police" and didn't think the son was angling the mower and then alternating the angle on alternate weeks?

Maybe dad had a DUI for mowing while drunk?
