JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – A Roswell tree service is accusing a would-be customer of extortion after they refused to do work for him.

According to the owner of the tree service, his company met with a Medridge Circle resident who wanted some trees cut down in his backyard near a creek. When he was told the neighborhood HOA and state law both forbade this, the suspect demanded the trees be cut for free or he would begin posting negative feedback on online review services.

The ratings of the business have fallen recently, which the victim says is because the suspect has been posting negative comments.
