Latham filmed himself in April being confronted by Durham’s wife, Catherine, about his driving. In the video, he repeatedly calls her “Karen.”

In another video, Durham’s 21-year-old son, William, appears to try and open Latham’s car door as he drives past. Latham can be heard telling William: “I got a knife, dude,” and captioned the video: “Karen’s son found out the video went viral and tried taking me out of the car,” the family’s lawyers told prosecutors in a letter.

The lawyers also claimed that in a now-deleted post, Latham can be seen holding a gun, saying: this is how you handle neighbors.”
