ROCKLIN (CBS13) — A Rocklin man has filed a restraining order against his neighbor, alleging his neighbor harassed him over his support of President Donald Trump.

Mason says he filed the restraining order that would keep the neighbors 100 feet away from his home. He says his Ring doorbell video shows their children harassing his family with Biden chants outside the home.
“I’m tired of getting harassed all the time,” Mason said. “My kids don’t want to come outside.”
He says they also painted “BLM” and “LGBTQ” chalk art outside his house.
“I went down there and asked them, ‘Well, why didn’t you write this in front of your house, or anybody else’s house? Why mine?’ And they just laughed at me,” he said.READ MORE: 'We Have Upheld Every Commitment': Steinberg Says Sacramento MLS Expansion Efforts To Continue After Lead Investor Backs Out

“It’s absolutely insane,” Millard said. “2020 has been kind of a crazy year.”
