How can I get my neighbor to stop playing loud music? I live in an in-zoned area near Swanton. I have tried talking to my neighbor but when I ask him to turn the music down he becomes hostile and combative. He has even driven over to my house and pounded on my door, when I answered he tried to coax me into a fight. I have called the sheriff on him before, the music stopped for a couple months.

Both neighbors on either side of me played really loud music late into the night until the early morning. And we’ve already spoken to them about it. One neighbor apologized, stopped doing it and then after a couple of months, started doing it agai.
