What has this tenant been doing? Have the police charged or cited them with anything?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
She's done everything from keying our cars to calling the police when we're having our sons' birthday parties (every year) to throwing food at our windows to sending people to our door to threaten us.The police have been called many times, but it's always been a he said-she said situation

As a tenant, you have a right to quiet enjoyment and to be free from the harassment and annoyance of other tenants. If this is documented, the landlord needs to act and if the tenant does not cease the conduct, evict her. If the landlord refuses and they are on notice, you would need to vacate and then sue the landlord for damages/costs incurred. I know it is not ideal but if the landlord does not act and you are essentially forced out, then the landlord should make you whole and pay for those costs.
