After years of saying their neighbors harassed them, a Tri-sate family is taking their complaint to a higher level.

For years, a Brown County family says their neighbors have harassed them because of their race.

Now this family plans to file a complaint with the US Department of Justice.

The Fields-Cooksey family says they've been held at gunpoint, shot at, had their horse mutilated, and endured constant harassment.

And they say the legal system in Brown County has failed them.

Which is why the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) is filing a complaint on their behalf.
