LOS ANGELES (AP) — Grammy-winning musician Chris Brown's neighbors are unhappy with the creepy art he's chosen to have painted along the curb of his Hollywood Hills home.

The Los Angeles Times reports ( ) a neighborhood group says the grimacing, sharp-toothed, red-eyed goblins painted along a retaining wall are scaring children.

Los Angeles city code officials cited the "Run It!" singer $376 for unpermitted and excessive signage and ordered him to remove it within 30 days.

Brown's attorney Mark Geragos says neighbors are harassing Brown, whose tumultuous relationship with singer Rihanna and foul-mouthed Twitter presence have given him a bad boy reputation.

Brown won a Grammy in 2011 for Best R&B Album with "F.A.M.E." and was arrested shortly after the 2009 awards ceremony for assaulting Rihanna.
