A FED-UP couple have sued their nightmare neighbour for blocking their shared driveway for six hours every day.
Apollo and Nataliya Hogan, from Brooklyn, filed the lawsuit against Edwin Aponte for "conducting weightlifting and exercise classes".
The couple said they can no longer use the shared space because Edwin turns the 8ft-wide road into an outdoor gym every day.
He allegedly lift weights, slam medicine balls, and sledgehammer tyres at the property in Bay Ridge, New York.
In a Brooklyn Supreme Court lawsuit seen by The Sun Online, Apollo and Nataliya claimed their neighbour refuses to let cars use the driveway while he’s pumping iron "in an obnoxious and menacing manner".
And they allege he blocks the couple's access to the shared garage, damages the concrete with his loud antics, and uses the area to store all his equipment.

The pair want a judge to order Edwin to stop hosting his gym classes and are seeking unspecified damages.
The Sun has contacted lawyers for Apollo and Nataliya.
It comes after a homeowner was left in shock after she woke up to find her back garden gate completely boarded up by her petty neighbours.
Rashonda Kelly, who lives in Virginia Beach, in Virginia, said she knows the people responsible and was "very suspicious" as to why they did it.

The woman believes it was all done to stop her from getting direct access to a nearby neighbourhood.
Her backyard fence sits in a strategic position – separating Virginia Beach from the Summerset Lake community.
The gate went up in early February 2015, but when Rashonda came out back in March that same year it was boarded up and with pieces missing.
Meanwhile, a savvy neighbour decided to take revenge on the couple next door who complained about her fence.
Donna Yopp Paul was ordered by her "controlling" neighbours to reduce the height of her six-foot fence by two feet to match the others in the area.
Although she had no choice but to obey the county rule, the savvy woman cited another by-law which allowed her paint the fence facing their house in clashing neon colours.
So while Donna kept it a pretty grey shade on her side, the couple now have a brand spanking new pink, purple, yellow and green fence to look at.
