Police were called to a home because the neighbors wanted the homeowner to turn the music down. When officers arrived they could clearly hear the music coming from a home with all the front lights on. When the officer approached the door he saw a man inside the living room lying on a bed. The man also saw the officer and flipped him the bird. The officer pressed the call button on the intercom system on the porch. The man answered and said, “get off my property. You are trespassing and I am going to shoot you.”
The officer announced himself as a police officer and told him he needed to turn his music down. The man ignored the officer and turned it up.
Another officer arrived on the scene and identified the homeowner and explained to the original officer that the man is disabled. The officer was informed that the neighbors who made the complaint were afraid of the man and did not want him to know who it was that called police.
Another neighbor told police about a woman who lives with this man. She gave officers the tenant’s phone numbers. She too was scared of the man and refused to open the door for the officers. According to the report, she asked police not to let him know she spoke with the officers.
Police continued to try to talk to the man through the intercom but he only shined a flashlight in the officer’s eyes and cussed them. He also told officers to release his brother form jail. He then turned the music up even louder.
Police did not charge him with threatening an officer but did write him a noise violation ticket and stuck it in his mailbox.
