Texas elementary school gets noise citation

A fed-up Texas homeowner has managed to get a noise citation issued against his neighbour — an elementary school.

SAN ANTONIO — A fed-up Texas homeowner has managed to get a noise citation issued against his neighbour — an elementary school.

Police in suburban Universal City say they had to issue the citation after Butch Armstrong complained about the noise coming from Olympia Elementary School during the school’s Family Fitness Day on March 20.

Principal Terri LeBleu says the school has already built a fence, removed loudspeakers and installed noise-reducing backing on basketball goals in response to Armstrong’s previous complaints.

According to a police report, Armstrong told an officer that “police, fire, ambulances and the (air force) training jets are not unreasonable, but the noise coming from the elementary school was.”

A court date for the citation has been set for May 12.
