Jens Lehmann reportedly took a chainsaw to his neighbour’s garage because it blocked his view of Lake Starnberg.
And Lehmann took that feud a step too far recently.
He was reportedly unhappy that a new garage blocks his view of the stunning Lake Starnberg in Bavaria.
Lehmann has owned a property by the lake for 15 years, buying it for around £4.2million in 2007 while he played for Arsenal.
Just looking at the images of the lake, you can understand why Lehmann likes it there.
But deny him a view of the lake and you’ll see the crazy side of Lehmann.
The crazy reports suggest the 52-year-old went next door with a chainsaw and “severed the roof beams” of the garage. He also attempted to switch off a surveillance camera to go undetected.
However, he failed and a live broadcast from the camera could be seen by the property’s owner
If he has a long-running feud with the neighbour, we reckon he would have been a suspect anyway.
In a ‘frenzy of rage’, Lehmann caused hundreds of pounds of damage with the chainsaw on the garage that he claims is also built on his land.
The police were called to Lehmann’s house and are now investigating whether he was responsible for THREE other cases of vandalism worth more than £8,500.
Lehmann has previously reported his neighbours for “property damage and coercion”.
“In a private message from my mobile phone to Dennis Aogo, an impression was created for which I apologised in conversation with Dennis,” Lehmann wrote. “As a former national team player he is very knowledgable and has a great presence.”
“Such statements in no way correspond to the values for which Hertha BSC stands and actively campaigns,” the club’s president, Werner Gegenbauer, said. “We distance ourselves from any form of racism.”
