FUSE TV - Chris Brown Spooks Hollywood Neighbors With "Scary" Street Art

Chris Brown is following in Justin Bieber's footsteps by raising the ire of neighbors in his Hollywood Hills subdivision. Only—unlike Biebs who was fingered for being too noisy and even accused of battery—Brown's infringement is scary street art. 

According to the Los Angeles Times, a neighborhood group is up in arms over some sharp-toothed goblins painted along a retaining wall on Brown's property.

Patti Negri, president of the Hollywood Dell Civic Association had this to say:

"There are lots of babies, lots of children, and they're literally frightened. It's like devils on the wall—big scary eyes and big scary teeth, and just the whole vibe is not what we're used to."

And apparently the offending art is not just an "in the eye of the beholder" type situation. L.A. city code officials responded to the complaints and cited the singer $376 for unpermitted and excessive signage.

According to L.A. city ordinances, it is illegal to have murals on most private properties and Brown has been ordered to part with his goblins within 30 days. But Chris Brown is not ready to see them go. His attorney, Mark Geragos, is totally on the case.

"They are trying to suspend the First Amendment," Geragos said.

The attorney also explained that the neighbs just seem to like harassing the R&B artist and this is just one of many complaints lodged in the past—including parking and animal control issues.

But Negri and the Dell Civic Association firmly disagree:

"I know a $300 fine is probably pocket change. But hopefully and maybe, he'll just see the light and decide to be a good neighbor," she said. "We're happy to have him—if he just tones it down."
