Barking man cited for noise violation
Published Monday, April 16, 2012
Officers cited a man for violating the county’s daytime noise violation Sunday afternoon after people complained he was cursing and barking like a dog in his yard in the 100 block of Brentwood Drive, Athens-Clarke police said.
The ordinance forbids noise in residential areas that can be heard more than 300 feet away, and the officer noted in the report he marked a distance of 320 feet from the spot where he heard the man, police said.
The 35-year-old man denied that he was yelling, and told the officer some people call him “the holy lamb of God,” according to police.
He refused to sign the citation, police said.
