To ignore someone

In a Spanish grammar book I have, it says that "to ignore" in Spanish is "no hacer caso." If I wanted to say "I ignore him," would I say:

Le no hago caso. (?)

Any help would be appreciated; thank you!

Ignorar a alguien es muy común.

Ignora a Chileno, es decir, no le hagas caso.

Sorry, Chileno, it was just an example

A flower for your pardon
