Epping, NH – A woman in New Hampshire was arrested four times in 26 hours for playing ACDC and Guns ‘n Roses too loudly.
Epping police said they were at the home of 53-year-old Joyce Coffey, responding to a noise complaint, and could hear ACDC’s “Highway to Hell” blaring from inside the home while sitting in their police car.
They issued Coffey a warning about the music but were called back to the house an hour later. They could hear Guns ‘n Roses playing from inside her home, so they arrested her. Five hours after being released from jail, police got another call regarding loud music coming from her home and Coffey was arrested a second time.
After being released, police say they were called back to her home about 1:10 a.m. Wednesday morning after receiving yet another report of loud music. For the third time, Coffey was arrested for wanting to rock out with her cock out.
The fifth and final call to police regarding Coffey was not one about loud music, but rather a domestic disturbance. Coffey’s nephew called to say that as he was trying to get his belongings out of Coffey’s house, she became angry and threw a frying pan at him, hitting him in the head. Police say alcohol was a factor in Coffey’s arrests.
On Friday, a judge suggested that Coffey use headphones to listen to her music and ordered her held on $10,000 bail. However, he said this could be converted to personal recognizance if Coffey agreed to an inpatient mental health evaluation program. If she completes the program successfully, Coffey would be able to return home equipped with electronic monitoring until she is due back in court on Oct. 15.
Thanks to WMUR, we have Coffey’s mugshots for each of her arrests. Not sure if they are in order or not, but I’d like to think she was upset over her arrests for being heavy metal, yet happy about beaning her nephew in the head with the frying pan.
I don’t care if it turns out Coffey is a loon and lets Glamour Shots do her makeup, I’d still party with her anytime. Here’s to you, Joyce Coffey, my all-time favorite ACDC song. (*turns up volume, tells co-worker to kiss his ass*)Tags: ACDC, frying pan, Joyce Coffey, Music, New Hampshire
