    Bristol officials said they are undeterred in enforcing the property code banning blight after an out-of-town landlord was arrested, accused of threatening to blow up City Hall over a dispute about grass that was not mowed.

    Bristol officials said they are undeterred in enforcing the property code banning blight after an out-of-town landlord was arrested, accused of threatening to blow up City Hall over a dispute about grass that was not mowed.

    Police said Robert D'Aprile suggested he'd blow up city hall with a bomb and was arrested at his Stamford.

    D'Aprile's lawyer told the Bristol Press that (http://bit.ly/1dpuRLA) his client was frustrated and had no intention of hurting anyone.

    Guy Morin, the chief building official, said Bristol has a zero tolerance for lack of property maintenance.

    He said the dispute was tied to a $1,600 bill from the city to D'Aprile for cutting the grass and removing debris after the landlord failed to do so.
