This sounds like new manager syndrome to me. Unfortunately, some managers never recover from it.

I've seen a lot of these kind of personality clashes in the workplace, and I have learned that in this kind of battle, a battle for the heart and mind of the boss, victory always goes to the side that shoots first. You MUST be the one who brings the complaint to the boss first. The boss doesn't care about justice. What the boss wants more than anything else is a quick and easy resolution, so he is always inclined to go with his first impression of the situation, which he will get from the first one to complain. Whoever reaches him first will poison the well for the other, regardless of right.
