Neighbor Calls Cops on Connery, Sean Connery

7/25/2008 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sean Connery"Scaffolding" is a great word to say in a Sean Connery accent -- but it sucks when his construction crew allegedly leaves the stuff all over your backyard.

Cops were called to Connery's Manhattan home today after his neighbor complained that Connery's crew left over 20 pieces of scaffolding in his backyard. Connery lives in the top two floors of the townhouse, so technically the backyard isn't his property. Connery and his neighbor, Burton Sultan, have been in a long-standing legal battle over construction issues for years.

We're told when cops arrived Sultan wasn't there, so nothing was done. Word is Sultan plans on calling again -- and actually being there this time. Connery's reps didn't know anything about it.

UPDATE: We're told the cops came back and left again. The cops didn't do anything, but we're told Sultan will file papers in court soon. Stay tuned.

Backyard in Manhattan? Who knew they had back yards in Manhattan!?

Sean Connery is still the best 007 ever (although Daniel Craig is a VERY close second... give him a couple more movies and who knows...)

Seriously? Calling the cops because of debris? The Debris Police? This guy needs to get over it and call the construction company.

Daniel Craig is the best bond, I say this after years of Sean Connerey being my favorite. Daniel Craig is more dangerous and moves like a cat. Sean also thinks it's ok to hit women to "keep them in line".

Obviously Mr. Sultan does not have enough to do.

I mean come on! Calling the police because construction equipment was left in the backyard. Don't you think that NY police have more important things to do? Then he's not even home when they come?!!! What an total jerk this guy is. They should give him a fine of some kind for making a frivolous complaint and wasting the officers' time.

Come on, Mr. Connery -- be a little neighborly! In my neck of the woods, we call going on someone else's property, uh... trespassing.

Sean Connery is so good looking, he can leave his scaffolding in my back yard anytime.
