But of course - Noise Violations!
Window-rattling Music Earns Citation
Kitsap Sun Staff Tuesday, July 22, 2008
A Kitsap County Sheriff's deputy responded to multiple noise complaints Saturday evening from the 13700 block of NW Klahanie Place. According to reports, the deputy could hear "loud music and heavy bass thumping." The deputy reported that while arriving he could hear the music coming from a parked vehicle despite being in a patrol car four houses away beside a man using a gas-powered weed eater.
The deputy approached the man to whom the car belonged and advised him to turn the music down so they could talk. The 44-year-old man responded that the music was coming from a vehicle on his property and therefore he did not have to turn it down. The deputy asked again and the man complied.
According to the report the man explained to the deputy that he had a right to play his music loud because it was between the hours of 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. The deputy then advised the man that there was a county ordinance and that his music was "rattling" the windows in his patrol car as he approached. The man was given a citation for violation of the county ordinance.
