Clovis police responded about midnight Friday to the 3800 block of Lew Wallace Drive regarding a noise complaint. Two police officers found seven people in an outside hot tub who denied making significant noise. Two males, later identified as the residents of the home, demanded to know the legal decibel level to justify noise complaints and demanded to get the officer’s first names.
The officers refused to give their first names, said the disorderly conduct statute was invoked because the neighbors has been disturbed in the home by the loud noise and arrested the two men who identified themselves as being responsible for the house. The rest were ordered to leave the area.
