A NEIGHBOUR from hell who spent years terrorising families in her block has been ordered to pay £200,000.
Vicki New was previously caught tearing up a “no trespassing” sign and threatening her neighbours in Twin Creeks Drive, Indianapolis.
A federal judge has now ordered her to pay after a lawsuit filed in 2020 alleged she “engaged in a pattern and practice of harassing, taunting and threatening” people based on race and national origin, WRTV reports.
The lawsuit was filed by the Fair Housing Center of Central Indiana and New’s former neighbour Donata Banks.
The lawsuit alleges she harassed Banks and hurled racial slurs at children at the bus stop before escalating to death threats and calling the police on her neighbours for no valid reason.
Following a criminal investigation, New was charged with criminal trespass, battery and criminal mischief but the charges were later dropped.
According to the decision Banks will receive £123,000 in punitive and compensatory damages.
The FHCCI will receive about £41,000 total in punitive and compensatory damages and attorney fees.
The homeowners association alongside Kirkpatrick Management Company are also named as defendants in the lawsuit.
As part of a separate settlement, they agreed to pay £216,000 in damages, attorney fees and costs.
The Twin Creeks Homeowners Association previously said it had received complaints of harassment from more than 20 residents-including allegations New called a number of her neighbours racial slurs.
Back in 2018, she was caught on camera attacking her neighbour with a “no trespassing” sign and was charged with battery and trespassing.
The woman who was even held at the Marion County Jail until the format charges were filed was caught on camera attacking the couple.
In a shocking video, she was seen pulling the sign of her neighbour’s yard and throwing it at them.
She then proceeds to call them racial slurs and threaten to kill them.
At the time Miguel Rios and Luvia Roman said they had constant problems with New, describing living next to her and her husband as a “living nightmare”.
“She keeps telling us she’s going to kill us, and we’re not sure when that night’s going to come,” said Miguel at the time.
New denied the accusations at the time with her attorney releasing a statement to RTV6 noting: “We believe this to be a property line dispute which was unfortunately overblown and my client is committed to resolving all issues with deference to everyone involved.”
According to WishTV the community requested the school bus stop to be moved away from New’s home.
