Don't know exactly what category this fits into - I have a neighbor who is bi-polar and doesn't take his meds - he is a 2 strike felon and has threatened other neighbors. He blasts music from his car stereo in his driveway a few times a day, sometimes in the middle of the night. We have called the police, but it usually takes them an hour to come out, if they come out at all, and he usually quits after 20-40 minutes. This is disturbing all my neighbors and we have come together to try to figure out what we can do. The house is owned by his parents - he is an adult (around 35). His parents are afraid of him and refuse to do anything to try to control him.
Is there any crime involved in this situation? Do we have any legal remedy we can pursue against the perpatrator of the noise harassment or his parents, the homeowners?
