If you document everything, and the cops aren't willing to do something and the bar association isn't either...then you go to the media...and they're usually more than happy to kick ass and chew gum...

At least that's the experience in my town. i could fill up a couple of gigs with the crap I've seen here.

Look how much it took to fight that dirtbag nyfong. i have no trust in the legal system to police itself.
Just because you are right does not mean the law is on your side.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

This sounds like one of the episodes of the Soprano's, when Tony parked his yacht in front of a lawyer's house who was suppose to buy a house from him. Tony blared Old crony music all night long from a powerful stereo system.
I would invite the local yacht clubs and marina people to have a raft up over the weekend and have a party. New years is next week. What a better time to have a party in front of his house all night long.
Please post what time the party starts!

He has a lot more to lose if you decide to settle it "the old fashioned way". In the end nothing good will come of this.

A local bar association is sometimes rquired to take sanctions when a member is convicted of criminal behavior. Note the word CONVICTED, you can expect that even if he is photographed--he will then try to settle and drop the charges and the DA or other prosecutor will encourage you to do this. If you don't settle, he'll find a way to make your court visits time consuming and expensive, so you are in for a fight up front.

Find out what you can about the local (not just state) bar association and what sanctions they are REQUIRED to take, that way you'll know what to aim for.

I'd still invest in the video cam. Paint ball players also use "paint grenades" for their fun, that scatter bright dye for 20+ feet. Might be interesting to see if you could rig a remote control to that--and tell the police "Just look for the man covered in red paint."

My evil twin brother would say forget all the bs, just burn his house down at 3AM after making sure to seal all the exits. But, sometimes he forgets that justice must take a back seat to civilized behavior.

If he wants to settle: How about some public service work, scraping, cleaning, and painting the bottoms of every boat at the nearest marina, every two months? That's almost as good as keelhauling.
