Bill Gross’s Southern California neighbor says the billionaire should be jailed for five days for violating a judge’s order not to play loud music because it’s the only way he’ll get the message that he must abide by it.

“Financial sanctions won’t have any effect on Mr. Gross’s behavior,” Chase Scolnick, a lawyer representing tech entrepreneur Mark Towfiq, told an Orange County judge Friday at the end of Gross’s contempt trial. “Five days will force him to take it seriously.”
