In grainy September 13 security footage obtained by TMZ, a man identified by the site as Hall is pictured arguing with another man before shoving him to the ground and walking away. The site reported at the time that the incident started after the neighbor left a gate open, prompting Hall to yell at him to close it. He then shut the gate himself before allegedly arguing with the neighbor and pushing him down.

TMZ reported that due to special circumstances, Hall’s max jail sentence may be upped from four years to seven.

This isn’t the first time the Sixteen Candles star has gotten into trouble at his condo. In 2011, TMZ reported that he was arrested on suspicion of disturbing the peace after an alleged dispute with his neighbor. The site also reported that Hall frightened his neighbors at the time by “screaming obscenities and challenging people to fights in the street.”
