The Mariachi music was blaring so loud from Bill Gross’s California ocean-front home it drowned out the surf and the traffic on the Pacific Coast Highway, a police officer told a judge at the start of a hearing over dueling harassment complaints from Gross and his neighbor.

Gross, known as the “Bond King,” and his neighbor, entrepreneur Mark Towfiq, began feuding after the billionaire installed a 22-foot-long blown glass sculpture by artist Dale Chihuly.
