My neighbors had a fight and I called 911 — was that the right move? #Neighbors & Hoods#People#advice#boundaries#crime#emergency#neighbors July 7 | Offbeat Editors @offbeathome runs these advice questions as an opportunity for our readers to share personal experiences and anecdotes.

Used under Creative Commons license. I had an unpleasant situation this weekend. My apartment neighbors (a couple in their 20s) had a fight, complete with thuds, pained screams, and the woman screaming, "Let go of me! Stop!" I called 911 since it seemed to be more than a lovers' quarrel. But since telling friends, some say I overstepped my boundaries and should have minded my own business. I feel if I'd done nothing and the fight escalated to a crime scene I could never live with myself. What would you do in this situation? How do you know when to intervene?
