A woman living across the street from Jordan reportedly filed a complaint with Air Compliance, which sent Graham running with his complaint book in hand.
“I can smell it again right now, but I’m on your property,” Graham told Jordan and his guests, according to a video taken of the exchange and posted on Jordan’s Facebook page. “You’re allowed to have it smell on your property, so that doesn’t count, but when I’m on the street, that’s when it counts.”
“So we’re supposed to control the smoke and the wind and where it’s blowing it?” Jordan asks.
How in the hell is someone supposed to control where the smoke goes from their own back yard?
