The issue is known as light trespass. Your right to shine lights on your property ends at your property line. Lights should not be directly visible from neighboring properties, or from the street. Most towns and counties have ordinances addressing the matter, though some don't enforce it well. A lot of people don't seem to understand the concept.

We have the same problem with our neighbor's lights. They hit the den, our bedroom and my daughter's bedroom. I feel like asking them if they really need those bright flood lights in all night. They have a barking dog do it's not like they need any extra protection. And our neighborhood doesn't have crime problems.

I had a very similar problem many years ago...early 70's. A certain neighbor decided to install a Sodium vapor light about 30 feet above the ground. It was so bright I literally could cut my front lawn at midnight.

Solution, after asking nicely 3 or 4 times, was a 26" goose gun with #4 Turkey loads. I guess the pellets not only took out the light but also the fixture, wiring, etc...it never went up again. He suspected but never could prove anything. You're a lot nicer than I am

Some neighbors diagonally across the street from us leave their floodlights on all night. They're the only house in the neighborhood that does this.

Unfortunately one of the lights shines directly into our bedroom. The solution was to buy some dark-colored curtains, which my wife wanted anyway.

You must live in my neighborhood. There is a house a couple streets over that has a fixture on every corner of the house with dual lights in each one. Every night those things are on. I would hate to be his neighbors.

Call your town/county's code enforcement. If your locale has a lighting ordinance and the neighbors are in violation, they can make them shield the lights or shut them down.

Naw, man - He's using some of your light without paying for it!

That's theft!

The best approach is to send him a bill for his share of the electricity.
