Leonardo DiCaprio’s neighbor is charging him with an offensive foul, claiming the actor excavated the neighboring property without permission and damaged plants and hedges to build a basketball court at his home.

Legal papers filed last week in Superior Court by Ronald and Joan Linclau said the construction weakened a hillside and left their deck and pool in danger of collapse.

The lawsuit seeks at least $250,000 in damages.

A DiCaprio spokesman, Ken Sunshine, said the lawsuit “is totally without merit.”

The lawsuit claimed DiCaprio ignored warnings that he was trespassing on the property, located in the hills above Sunset Boulevard.
