Enraged Man Rips Up Ticket; Swears At Cop

He was blaring music at 4 a.m. An arrest is merely an accusation and not evidence of a conviction.


Police responded to a loud music complaint just before 1:30 a.m. on Monday in the 8100 block of Ozanam, and heard the loud music when they arrived. They found the 28-year-old occupant on the front porch yelling at his cell phone, and he became enraged that officers were speaking to him, according to the report. When police asked him to quiet down, he replied, "fine, I'm going to sleep anyways."

The person who had made the complaint call, who did not give his or her name, phoned police again at 4:01 a.m. to say the occupant was playing loud music again and talking loudly, according to the report. Police officers spoke with the occupant and said they smelled the odor of alcohol on his breath and observed he had red, glassy eyes, according to the report. 

Police said he directed expletives and negative language at them, they said. When they asked him to turn down the music, he replied, "F*** you." Police asked him again to turn down the music, again he refused, the police wrote a municipal ordinance ticket for noise complaint and cost of emergency services, and the occupant ripped it up and let the pieces fall on the sidewalk, saying "F*** this s***, I ain't paying s***," according to the report.

Police wrote another ticket for depositing articles on the public sidewalk, and said the man became enraged, ran into his residence, and, a short time later, the loud music ceased, they said.

What is it with our yutes?

Certain police officers ENJOY IT when people give them a hard time ~ and they will make it a point to stick it to you when the matter gets to court, especially when the police officer quotes EXACTLY what you said, which the judge will NOT appreciate AND SANCTION YOU WORSE than if you had kept your mouth shut. My advice to everyone is, don't play into the system's game... If you receive a ticket, accept it from the officer when it's handed to you ~ and most importantly, SHUT YOUR MOUTH... You will ALWAYS be throwing hundreds, or even thousands of dollars out the window for opening up your mouth... Regardless of who is right or wrong, or even if you were having a bad day ~ and now this happened; just accept the ticket and don't allow your mouth to create you a cheap enemy, especially with the police. They have a job to do (write tickets and generate revenue to justify their jobs), and we have a job as citizens to conduct ourselves in a professional and respectful manner. SILENCE IS GOLDEN . . .

Harry, I find your comment distasteful based on your thinly veiled contempt for law enforcement, but you are right about keeping your attitude in check during an encounter. Your comment about law enforcement having a job to do (write tickets and generate revenue) is absolutely rude coming from what I assume to be an adult. Your other comment about officers' enjoying it when they get a hard time, is probably just you projecting your fetish upon others.
