Police in Georgia cited a man for violating the county’s daytime noise violation on Sunday afternoon after people complained he was cursing and barking like a dog in his yard, Athens-Clarke police said.
The ordinance forbids noise in residential areas that can be heard more than 300 feet away.
The officer noted in his report that he marked a distance of 320 feet from the spot where he heard the man.
The 35-year-old man denied that he was yelling, and told the officer some people call him “the holy lamb of God”
He refused to sign the citation, police said.
