What are the Noise Complaint Rules?
By an edhat reader
My lawyer neighbor has had some pretty loud drunken parties (rental unit) which involve singing, cursing, arguing, drinking, cigarettes (our building is non smoking), and pot. Last time I got woken up at 3am and when I called the non-emergency police line they told me the noise complaint law only applies to amplified music. So officers would only come if I was willing to make a citizens arrest. I wanted sleep not to enter into legal entanglements with a lawyer neighbor. Did laws change? Just last year they came out no problem. Our building manager is not on site nor local. I think the party wound down at 4am on a weeknight.
