JULY 17 UPDATE: Police confirm that Matthew Thomas, the neighbor seen charging toward Danielle's husband in the video, was arrested on July 10 for battery with substantial bodily harm. He was later released after posting bail.


A fight between neighbors reaches a fever pitch. Now, a mother is moving her kids out of their childhood home and hoping her husband will live.

Danielle Chatfield has lived in a southeastern Las Vegas home for several years. She says there have been several terrifying encounters with her next-door neighbor.

This has been going on for several months. Some of the issues center around noise complaints and unwanted fireworks. The most recent incident happened this month.

Chatfield says the latest incident turned into an all out brawl that put her husband in the hospital. She has a black eye. She says she's called police several times and is trying to go through the courts. In the meantime, she feels there's nothing else she can do but move.

"I feel like it's a horrible nightmare that I should be waking up from and I wake up every day, and it's not. It's the same day over again. I'm reliving it every single morning," said Chatfield.

We knocked on the neighbor's door, but no one would come out and speak.
