An officer responded to Oak Avenue for a noise complaint. A man was reported to be sitting in his van, revving the engine and honking the horn. The officer knew this was an ongoing issue with the man, and warned the man—who was intoxicated—to stop his behavior and leave his vehicle turned off as the man reported living out of it.

This time the man was so intoxicated that it was impossible to hold a conversation with him, and the officer issued him a citation for loud noise, as well as a special response notice.
