A Chloe man was injured Wednesday night after an alleged dispute over property with his father-in-law, Arley Matheney. Dick Jarvis was taken to Charleston Area Medical Center after he was reportedly drug across the creek following an encounter. Matheney apparently came onto the Jarvis property, after which tempers flared.

Jarvis was prone along the West Fork River near Route 16 south of Chloe, when emergency services arrived, complaining with problems with his legs. A source at the scene said "He was drug by a farm tractor," but that could not be verified. A call was made to Calhoun Control at 8:45 p.m. by the Jarvis family, stating Matheney had a gun. Later a caller reported Matheney left the scene in a truck.

Calhoun Sheriff Allen Parsons and Trooper Doug Starcher answered the call, after which Calhoun EMS was summoned for Jarvis' medical problem. Trooper Ellyson from Clay County also responded.

Calhoun court records indicate prior problems between the two men, including an incident where they got into a fight while digging a grave at a local cemetery.

Sources said Matheney was supposedly restrained from going on the Jarvis property.

Police are continuing to investigate the incident.
