ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Albuquerque neighbors claim a former University of New Mexico football player is a neighborhood nightmare.

“I will kill your whole family,” yelled the former football player in a video to his neighbor.
That’s Royce Greer, threatening his neighbors.
“This f***ing Mexican doesn’t know what he’s messing with,” said Greer in the video.
Greer’s neighbors took the video after what they said has been a nightmare of a year.
In the video, both neighbors can be heard yelling at one another. The former offensive lineman’s words are clear.
“I’m going to get your a** sent back to Mexico,” said Greer.
“He’s told us that he’s going to put a hit on our family,” said Greer’s neighbor. “That he’s moving to Arizona and that he’s going to get us killed.”
Greer’s neighbors didn’t want to be named, but said they used to be cordial with the ex-Lobo, even friends.
“I don’t really know what triggered it,” said the neighbor.
They now claim the interactions are extremely toxic.
“Exactly because you’re a b****, that’s why you didn’t play football,” yelled Greer in the video to his neighbor. “You played flag football for two weeks and you got a f***ing injury.”
KRQE News 13 went to Greer’s house to ask him what prompted the fight caught on camera. Instead, the ex-Lobo ranted about New Mexico.
“I’ll let anyone know how crappy this place is, because I’m getting ready to take a job in Arizona,” said Greer to KRQE News 13’s cameras.
When he was asked again about his neighbors, he accused them of attacking him.
“They’ve even split my head open,” asked Greer. “Do you want to go down to UNMH and get the records about my head getting split open?”
In a sports podcast Greer recorded last year, he said he got the scar on his head from fighting off home intruders.
His neighbors now say they’re scared and just want one thing.
“I’m not trying to get him punished; I’m not trying to do anything to him. I just want him to leave us alone,” said the neighbor.
The video does show the neighbors cussing at Greer too. At one point, Greer said he just got home and they started yelling at him.
