    So it’s ok for him to blare music at all hours with kids next door? Verbally threaten his neighbor’s job, wife, and kids to the point the neighbors employer had to lock down the building and involve the police (and yes it is documented)? Drive intoxicated? And now this. He is responsible for his actions and deserves ramifications.
