Yeah, except for the Tush Brothers' high speed chase through the Texas night, yours took the cake today. [That pan handle police officer gets one right up there, though.]
That said, we've fortunately had nothing but good relations with the muggles who discover us -- whether we explain the sport or supply a cover story. But then, I can get Customs officers to chuckle, too.... so may be one of those weir-- er... spectacularly screwball individuals. Or, my time is coming. [May I stay firmly with option #1, Mr. Cosmic Game Show Host? Thank you.]
One bad incident can spoil a whole lotta caching, though. And that's a shame.

Have to agree here. Best thing would be to reassure him that you were not on that side (east) of the fence and that he didn't have anything to worry about from you. Then you walk away...
I have had a MUCH worse experience because someone placed one on private property and didn't think to find out if it was or not before placing it...

IMHO, you should have just walked away once you knew he was the
property manager and you had been asked to leave. Plus, you knew (or
at least had reason to believe because of the hint) that you shouldn't
have been on the east side in the first place.
Did you really think he was going to give a rat's patooty about some
website and the fact that you were going to post on it? I'm sorry, but
