Loud music lands man in court
WHEN Glen Andrew Mayes was asked by police officers to turn down his loud music at 2.50am on November 18, he thought it was because his neighbours didn’t like his country and western tunes.
Being a good neighbour, he thought he’d play something nearby residents “would prefer”: classical music.
Needless to say police came knocking on his door again soon after and the Maryborough resident was charged with knowingly refraining from a noise abatement order.
Mayes, 38, pleaded guilty to the charge in the Maryborough Magistrates Court this week and was fined $500.
The court was told Mayes was serving a suspended jail sentence.
