Similar thing happened to me several years ago. I was up on a roof hanging on a beam 30 feet off the ground nailing in rafters when a county vehicle pulled up and a "building official" got out and told us to come down off the roof and stop work immediately because we did not have a permit posted. I told him that we were over 200 feet off the front property line in an A-1 zoning and if he knew his own zoning laws he would know that he would need to come up and get me if he wanted me down, and good luck knocking me off of that roof because I had my favorite ovrsized hammer in my hand.
Then I told him if he wanted to help, there was a spare hammer by the cooler that was full of beer, and to toss me one if he got one too.
He got in his car and left.
