Woman Threatens to Sue Neighbor Over Biden Yard Sign in Ring Doorbell Video

An irate woman has threatened to sue her neighbor over a Biden yard sign in the latest battle of suburban politics.

The fiery encounter, which was captured on a ring doorbell video, shows the woman march up to her neighbor's front door demanding they take their Biden sign down.

The woman, dressed in a tie-dye blue dress and a pastel pink visor, jabs at the doorbell with one hand while holding a set of documents in the other.

"I want to talk to you ... I want to show you something," the unidentified woman can be heard telling her neighbor.

"You get out your neighborhood association bylaws... Section 5.20, no signs shall be in the yard," she continues while reading from the documents.

"If you don't take this Harris-Biden s**t down, I will sue you.

With her hands on her hips and still getting no response, the woman continues her verbal tirade.

"And I was going to have you sell my house but that's not going to happen now and you're going to lose a lot of business because of this crap," she continues.

The woman finally leaves the property but not before brandishing the documents in the air once more and shouting, "You get out your neighborhood association bylaws, section 5.20!"

The woman then storms back across the yard to her home as her neighbor is heard faintly commenting, "Well, I got all that on film."

The video, which appears to have originally been uploaded to Reddit, has since gone viral on other social media platforms, clocking up hundreds of thousands of views.

According to the time stamp on the video, the incident was recorded on Sunday.

It was uploaded on Monday under the title "HOA Karen does NOT approve of Biden signs in the yard."

The short clip attracted comments from bemused viewers who were quick to brand the woman a 'Karen' and question whether she was drunk.

"She strings together her sentences with the efficiency of a broken washing machine motor full of molasses," one person quipped.

"If she does try to sell her house, show up at her door and tell her section 5.20 says she can't put a 'for sale' sign in her yard," another suggested.

"She's not upset at the sign. She's upset that someone in the world isn't a conservative," one person said.

Just last month, Florida police arrested a Trump supporter who injured his neighbor during a dispute over a political lawn sign placement.

The 55-year-old resident of central Florida's Volusia County, near Orlando, allegedly punched his neighbor in the face amid a confrontation that arose over the pair's opposing yard displays.

The suspected offender, Anthony Vullo, was taken into custody for assault and battery charges.

Police said a conflict involving political campaign merchandise drove the subsequent altercation between Vullo and next-door neighbor Joseph Lebert.

Lebert reportedly approached Vullo after realizing he "took [Lebert's] political yard sign from his yard and threw it across the yard," the sheriff's office stated in its report.

Lebert told police Vullo shoved him during what began as a verbal encounter and later punched him in the left side of his face after Lebert pushed back.

And earlier this month, Trump 2020 campaign signs were booby-trapped with razor blades, which sliced a city worker's hand in southeast Michigan.
