N.H. woman arrested 4 times in 26 hours for loud music, assault

          Good Day

     Humboldt County!

 The following story is so unique I had to share it. I’ve heard of people getting in trouble for playing loud music after a certain time of night (curfews vary from city to city, but one example is San Bernardino where it’s 10:00 p.m.), but a serial repeater? Nope. New to me. How about you?  

This series of booking photos shows Joyce Coffey after being arrested four times in 26 hours on Tuesday and Wednesday.

“Joyce Coffey of Epping, N.H., just didn't seem to get it -- or care -- when she was arrested four times in 26 hours earlier this week. The police run-ins stemmed from loud AC/DC and Guns N' Roses music police said could be heard blasting from her house as well as Coffey allegedly throwing a frying pan at her nephew.

Epping police said they first visited Coffey's home on Tuesday at 3 p.m. local time, when they warned her to turn down the music, WMUR-TV in New Hampshire reported. They returned an hour later, found the music was still playing, and arrested her.

The final call to Coffey's home was for a report of a domestic disturbance. Police said Coffey's nephew alleged she threw a frying pan at him, hitting him in the head, when he tried to get some of his belongings from her house.

She was arrested a fourth, and on Thursday a judge ordered her to undergo a mental health evaluation.If she completes the evaluation, the judge said, she will be released to home confinement with electronic monitoring. The judge also suggested that Coffey, who is due back in court on Oct. 15, use headphones to listen to music, WMUR reported.” (source)
