A San Diego newspaper published an article this week about a numismatic author's altercation with a neighbor.
A penny for your thoughts? Myron Michael Kliman, a 77-year-old coin dealer from Laguna Niguel, wrote the book on them.
But police aren't sure what he was thinking when he was arrested following a knife attack Saturday night.
Police were called at 8:40 p.m. to the 24900 block of La Plata Drive. Kliman's neighbor told police her husband had been assaulted when his hand was cut with a knife.
According to the police supervisor's log, neighbor Sean Harper was confronted at home by Kliman over a pine needle dispute.
After detaining both men, police arrested Kliman, author of "The Two Cent Pieces and Varieties."
He was later released after posting an undisclosed bail.

Coin collector, 77, arrested after knife attack
Is this a case of a knowledgeable reporter who knows numismatic literature, or a lazy reporter who just Googled a name that showed up on the police blotter?
