Sounds like things worked out about right to me.
People who let their dogs bark for hours and hours deserve whatever's coming. One barking dog can keep an entire neighborhood from sleeping or enjoying the rest of their lives.
This! The OP's brother didn't stop his dog from barking constantly and driving the neighbor nuts, but suddenly he steps up when the neighbor inevitably reacts? That's D-bag behavior.
The OP's brother got what he deserved and needs to A) apologize to his neighbor, then B) buy a bark collar for his dog!
