Madison County officials are planning to evict Dick Thompson from his recreational trailer that sits on 38 acres.
MAD-IS-ON COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) – 72-year-old Dick Thompson isn’t sure if he wants to fight or give up.
“I want to get the hell out of here right now — too much hate,” Thompson says one minute.
“I think it’s a bunch of bull,” he says another, vowing to stay.
Thompson faces eviction from his 38 acres in Madison County. The county lawyer tells 24-Hour News 8 it’s because Thompson is breaking too many rules, laws and ordinances; Thompson has no water, no sewer and no electricity in his recreational trailer that he calls home.
“I’m a country boy,” explains Thompson. “I just want to be left alone.”
Thompson is mighty fine, thank you very much — along with his dog, Ace, his horse, Fritz, his bird, Sunshine, and many more.
The eviction papers state go-time is “Nov. 30 at noon,”’ though no one came — not yet.
