A disabled man faces jail for laughing too loudly in his own home after his neighbor complained he could hear his loud guffaws across the driveway.
Robert Schiavelli, 42, of Rockville Centre, New York has been accused of 'disturbing the peace' after police were called to his home on February 12 and 13 after receiving complaints.
But Schiavelli, who is considered disabled because he suffers from neurological impairments and suffers seizures, said he was just laughing off the neighbor's offensive remarks about his disability.
He and his mother, who also lives at the home, claim that the neighbor, Daniel O'Hanian, has ridiculed Schiavelli for years and 'sneered' at the man on the day of the first complaint.
To cope with the alleged treatment, he has learned to laugh it off, he said.
