Melbourne Man Arrested After Pissing Off Neighbours With 24-Hour Music Marathon

Written by Emmy Mack on June 14, 2017

A Melbourne man has booked himself a date in court after cheesing off his neighbours by blasting the radio for 24-hours straight in an attempt to “ease his back pain” over the Queens Birthday long weekend.

The 42-year-old from Geelong allegedly flouted police’s requests to turn the volume down during his marathon music therapy sesh, and ended up in the back of a paddy wagon on Monday morning after locals got jack of all the noise.

Police allege that the music-loving middle-ager is a serial offender, telling the local paper that they’ve visited his house 36 times over the past 12 months due to noise complaints.

“He showed a blatant disregard for police direction,” Sergeant Heyward tells the Geelong Advertiser, alleging that the accused noise polluter would routinely lock himself inside his house in a cheeky attempt to dodge police. “We believe he will continue to commit offences.”

While the man argues that he was just innocently enjoying the Queen’s Birthday celebrations and that the music was helping him with his back pain.

“It helps my body stop my body aches,” he says, although we can’t say the same for the pain in his neighbours’ arses.

So what music was he listening to? Local stations K-Rock and Fox FM apparently, so 24-hours of non-stop Top 40.

Figures. There’s only so many times a person can hear Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape Of You’ before they start to crack.
