John Poulin, 45, of Concord was arrested on March 14 on a charge of disorderly conduct.
According to Officer Eric Pichler's report, he and Officer Almedin Dzelic were sent to a Maplewood Lane apartment building at 12:52 a.m. for a report of loud music. Pichler wrote both officers could clearly hear country music coming from the building even as they stood outside.
Once inside, the officers talked with the man who phoned in the complaint. He said that his upstairs neighbor, later identified as Poulin, had been playing loud music for several hours. He told the officers that Poulin was a heavy drinker and sometimes "passes out" with the music playing loudly, Pichler wrote.
Pichler and Dzelic went upstairs to Poulin's apartment, which they determined was the source of the loud music. According to Pichler's report, the officers knocked several times and heard Poulin yelling before he eventually came to the door.
The officers told Poulin that they had received a complaint about the music and asked him to turn it down since it was after midnight. According to Pichler, Poulin didn't believe it was after midnight, but he eventually agreed to turn off his music and go to sleep. Poulin was then warned that if they received another complaint about loud music coming from his apartment, he would be issued a summons and could possibly be charged with disorderly conduct. Pichler wrote that he could smell a strong odor of alcohol coming from Poulin's breath. Pichler added that Poulin's speech was slurred, and he seemed to have trouble standing without leaning on the door frame.
At 1:48 a.m., Officers Pichler and Dzelic were sent back to Poulin's apartment. Dispatch told the officers that the man who had called earlier said the music was back on and louder than before. The caller said that he could also hear Poulin screaming profanities over the music.
According to the report, Pichler could again hear country music playing from outside the apartment building upon their arrival. When the officers went up to Poulin's apartment to confront him, Poulin became agitated and began using profanity toward the officers, Pichler wrote.
Poulin was arrested for disorderly conduct. At the station, Poulin continued to use profanity and complained that the booking process was taking too long, Pichler wrote.
Poulin was given a $1,000 personal recognizance bail. He is due in court on April 14.
