Loud neighbor will have to listen to courts after ignoring deputies

An Orion Township man who was playing his music too loud and then would not be “reasonable” with deputies is now dealing with the court system.

Deputies went to the 2400 block of Holland Street at 8:15 p.m. May 16 when a neighbor complained about the loud music coming from his neighbors’ speakers out by his pool.

Deputies recorded the loud music and “witnessed the unreasonable loud sound level on the complainant’s property” according to a sheriff’s office report.

Deputies went to the neighbor to ask if he would turn the music down and they were ordered off the property.

After the first deputy left the scene, the neighbor turned the music up again and another deputy arrived on scene and attempted to discuss mutual neighborly respect regarding loud music.

Due to the lack of reasonable response from the loud neighbor, the investigation and case is being reviewed for the courts.
