Police Ticket Man for Laughing Too Loud
A Long Island man's laughter is no laughing matter to his next-door neighbor.
Robert Schiavelli, 42, has been issued a pair of tickets by police for disturbing the peace after next-door neighbor Daniel O'Hanian called the police because he said Schiavelli was laughing too loud out his window.
A detective wrote up two tickets for "disturbing the peace'' on Feb. 12 and 13 for Schiavelli, who was born with a neurological impairment, according to his parents. Schiavelli lives at home with his parents in Rockville Centre on Long Island.
The complaint for Schiavelli's laughing was the latest in an ongoing dispute between the neighbors that Schiavelli's mother, Suzanne, said began over renovations and escalated when O'Hanian began to regularly make fun of Schiavelli for his neurological condition.
