Joyce Coffey really really likes AC/DC and Guns N’ Roses (I am assuming “Ought Ta Get Me” was playing at some point in this revolving door with police). Coffey was arrested four times in 36 hours — three times for playing “Highway To Hell” and other songs too loudly. Coffey would no sooner make bail then she would be back blasting the music and eventually succeeded in finding that “season ticket on a one-way ride” – police on the fourth arrest held her for psychiatric evaluation.
The fourth arrest was for allegedly throwing a frying pan at her nephew, who was trying to remove his things from her house.
The series of arrests began on Tuesday at 3 p.m. when they warned her to turn down the music. When she had not done so an hour later, she went to jail and was released on $500 personal recognizance. Five hours later, she was again blasting Guns N’ Roses and AC/DC. She was arrested at 9 pm and released on $1000 bail. Then four hours later, she was at it again and arrested at 1:10 am. After paying $10,000 bail, she again returned home. (She clearly is not hurting for cash). Finally, arrested a fourth time when the nephew reported the pan incident and a judge ordered her to undergo a mental health evaluation.
Here the kicker. If she passes the evaluation, she will be put into . . . you guessed it . . . home confinement. Just her and her stereo.
