Expressing outrage at a ticket for violating a noise bylaw by running up and down the halls and smashing on doors didn't work in a woman's favour at an Estevan apartment Thursday night.

EPS Sgt. Kevin Reed said police were called shortly after 9 p.m. to an apartment for a complaint of a loud stereo. They warned a female to turn it down.

Police were called 30 minutes later to the same residence for the same complaint, and issued her a ticket under the noise bylaw.

After another half hour, they responded to the location a third time. 

"She was going up and down the hallways, banging on apartments and screaming and yelling because she was angry that she got a ticket for her loud stereo," said Reed, adding that the female "was quite intoxicated."

Police issued her a second ticket, and arrested her for public intoxication and causing a disturbance.

"It's unfortunate that the complainants have to go through that when they just want to have some peace in their homes," Reed added.

He said police would release the woman Friday morning with two summary-offence tickets totalling $750.

The EPS also responded to a welfare check on an elderly woman. Reed said the family had been trying to reach her, but couldn't. The subject of the wellfare check was fine, and got into communication with her family.
