Braselton police were recently called for a report of disorderly conduct that started over a confrontation over masks.

Officers with the Braselton Police Department were called to a Friendship Rd. medical facility after a man confronted a delivery driver about not wearing a face mask.

When an employee approached the man and asked if there was a problem, he reportedly "started in" on the employee and began recording.

The man left the facility and employees followed, saying they wanted to see if they could help the situation and get the man to calm down. They were standing behind the man's truck when he began backing out of the parking space. They told officers it appeared the man was trying to hit them with his truck.

He reportedly got out of the vehicle and "started in" again on the employees before leaving the scene.
