"Over the years he's become a real problem. He has a lot of issues fearing aliens," Nancy Raich, Brown's across the street neighbor, told WKBN-TV.
Raich, 72, said she wants to sell her house and buy a condo, but she can't get anyone interested in her property because of the spectacle across the street.
"Who wants to buy my house? A nice decent house, garages, acreage in Hermitage, a nice place to live, when this yahoo across the street decides he wants to shine lights on me?" Raich said.
"I've had a lot of nice couples come and look at my house," she told The Herald newspaper of Sharon, Pa. "You can't get a second look until that's cleaned up."
A judge ordered Brown to take down the lights earlier this year, imposing a $500-per-day fine if he continued to shine his spotlights late into the night. Officials said he has not complied and now owes more than $20,000.
The city said it has now filed a petition to get an injunction to have Brown's lights removed.
"It's a violation of the city's zoning ordinance to have excess lighting that adversely affects neighboring properties," Hermitage City Manager Gary Hinkson said.
