Noise complaint leads to arrest for disorderly conduct

Officers from the Covington Police Department responded to a noise complain Monday afternoon and arrested a 34-year-old woman for disorderly conduct.
Around 7 p.m., officers arrived at the home of Patrice Maria Duckett on Hendricks Street to discuss numerous complaints from her neighbors about loud music coming from her residence.

When the officers spoke to Duckett, she reportedly told them that on each occasion that they were called out to her home, in her opinion her music was never too loud. She also allegedly told the officers she would "find out who was calling 911 and handle it."
The officers advised Duckett that, because of the number of times they had been called to her home on noise complaints, any future call would result in her receiving a noise ordinance citation and that patrol officers working that area would be informed of the situation.

At this point Duckett became extremely angry, according to reports. She demanded the officers leave her residence and then demanded that they go to her next door neighbor's home and "tell her (expletive) son to keep his (expletive) radio down also."
Officers attempted to calm her down, but she allegedly began screaming at her neighbor's front door and tried to open the screen door. She also reportedly continued to yell obscenities at the neighbor as officers placed her under arrest for disorderly conduct. She was transported to the Newton County Detention Center.
