MISSION, Texas -- A South Texas priest is being taken to court over his church bells, and it seems someone doesn't like hearing the daily ringing from Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mission.

Father Roy Snipes said he tried to compromise with the neighbor but that only made things worse.

We tried to ring them less and turn down the volume and that only encouraged him to try to intimidate me, Father Snipes said.

Father Snipes is now facing a fine for being a public nuisance and is due in court on Thursday.
