A former Davenport alderman accused of assault was found not guilty in Scott County Court.

Keith Meyer, 71, faced the misdemeanor charge of assault while displaying a weapon after he was arrested in November 2012.

Meyer and his neighbor reported argued over a speed bump Meyer was constructing in the driveway they share, and Meyer allegedly pointed a shotgun at the neighbor.

Meyer represented himself at trial.

Jurors began deliberating Friday and resumed deliberations Monday, February 25.

Court officials confirmed the jury delivered a ‘not guilty’ verdict Monday afternoon.
