A man is heading back to prison after reportedly assaulting his neighbor during a disagreement.
39 year-old Burton Cortez of East Jordan was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and malicious destruction of property after an incident in September.
According to prosecutors, Cortez and a neighbor became involved in a disagreement over property lines.
At some point during the disagreement, Cortez and men reportedly approached and assaulted the man with a knife.
