Police turn tables on Brighton DJ - they arrest him for refusing to lower the volume
Boston Police report arresting a BU student they say responded to their request to turn his music down by turning it up.
Police say officers responding to a noise complaint at 109 Brainerd Rd. shortly after 5 p.m. yesterday were met by a wall of sound emanating from a third-floor apartment - and by a resident who asked them to do something about it:
Officers knocked on the apartment door for a while before the suspect opened the door. Officers advised the suspect to turn down the music due to the multiple 911 calls. The suspect stated, "I'm not turning anything down!" Officers advised the suspect the music was loud and suspect replied, "I'm not turning it down."
Police say as the officers tried to reason with Jurgen Lippert, more neighbors came out of their apartments and pleaded with them to do something about the racket, which they said was a daily occurrence. Police say the apartment DJ apologized for disturbing his neighbors but that he needed to "practice mixing music."
Lippert then turned his music up louder, police say. Officers then arrested him for disturbing the peace.
