New York — A New York City man who says he has a fear of the Tasmanian Devil claims his father-in-law repeatedly scared him with a toupee that looks like the cartoon character.

The New York Post reports Yunes Doleh was arrested in November for violating a restraining order filed by his son-in-law, Mazen Dayem.

The 36-year-old says Doleh terrorised him at a funeral by waving the hair piece and snarling.

The Staten Island man says he's had a fear of the Tasmanian Devil his entire life.

Dayem claims his father-in-law has taken advantage of his phobia since 2013.

Dayem filed a restraining order in September following an altercation with Doleh at a restaurant.

An attorney for Doleh labelled the case a "family dispute".

Doleh faces charges of criminal contempt and aggravated harassment.
