Thanks to to the tireless tweeting of Hamptons Handyman Joe Schwenk (aka HamptonsBorn), we know about a fairly serious confrontation that happened this morning between a hedge fund manager and his generators, a neighbor with a hatred for noise, lawyers, private security, and the cops.

We imagine that the hedge fund manager, identified only as "Mr. C",  probably needs those "movie set" generators — Bloomberg machines suck up a lot of power.

It all started out early this morning:

Couldn't have put it better ourselves, and of course, eagerly await the next showdown.
