ALEXANDRIA, La. - A judge has ordered a teenager who blasted his pickup truck stereo to remove all non-factory installed sound equipment for violating a noise ordinance.

Calvin Bennett Jr., 18, got the loud-music ticket in 2004 but missed his initial court appearance. Last Monday, he was arrested for contempt of court and spent the night in jail. He appeared Tuesday before district Judge Thomas Yeager on the loud-music citation.

The teen pleaded guilty, got a 90-day sentence suspended and was given probation. As a condition of probation, he had to turn in his drivers license for 30 days and remove his stereo equipment.

Yeager said he ordered the sentence to try to deter young adults from disturbing their communities with loud music. "It is a big problem but one that has a solution," he said.

The Pineville and Alexandria police departments stay busy fielding loud-music complaints. Both cities have ordinances addressing loud noise, including drivers playing their radios too loudly.

"The sentence isn't going to stop me playing music," Bennett said. "I love my music."

How precious it would be to my ears to have some passing through our neighborhood meet the same fate.

I don't know the first thing about playing bagpipes, but I swear when the cars go by on Friday night with gangsta rap blaring out every orifice, I want to climb on my roof with a set of pipes and have a showdown. walkman.gif One of these days I'll probably just snap, set up my stereo on the roof and blast Wicked Tinkers at the whole lot of 'em!

Before my portable CD player went AWOL, what I'd do when someone in the car next to me was blaring rap music is I'd roll down my windows (if it was nice enough) and crank up one of my Metallica CDs. punk.gif

The songs that usually make the other person shrink away are "Enter Sandman", "Master of Puppets", "Creeping Death", "Blackened" and "Seek & Destroy". punk.gif

No, I won't post what I was going to here. I really can't talk though. I've got the power to rattle windows in the house, and I'm not afraid to use at least most of it. My car's system is factory though. Never heard anyone outside the house say anything about my cranking my tunes, and I tend to do so on both said systems. (Although I've never had either even close to maxed out while a live source was playing. Wouldn't want to either)

What a bogus sentence. They should have made him 'tedune' his stereo until it complied with noise polution laws. Forcing him to remove all equipment that he bought and installed legally is going too far. That judge has a stick up his arse. He should sell his truck, buy another one, and reinstall every circuit of that system.

This kind of stuff is why older folks get the label 'ornery'.

And to think, this is the garbage your police are wasting their time and tax money on. The world has enough real criminals for us to be making new ones up.

Oh, I don't know. This is the type of "garbage" I wouldn't mind my police dept working on. The house next door has 3 teenagers living in it, and all three with their own cars and radios. I work nights and sleep during the day. I really LOVE it when they pull up at noon and leave their car parked outside BLASTING the BASS for 20 minutes while they "run" inside to go get something, or sit outside talking to friends. sad.gif unsure.gif Their mother has told them to knock it off, but she has no control over them. unsure.gif

Yes she does. They're called wire cutters.

I agree with Oldraven. Although I think people should have respect enough to turn their music down when they enter a neighbohood. The judge had no right to make him take out all his equipment. Isn't that against some kind of civil law or something?
