In 2009 a guy named Russell got in trouble for cranking John Denver at three in the morning. The guys tried to track him down ended up talking to three fairly interesting people.
FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) — Police responding to a complaint of loud noise have cited a Fond du Lac man for “rocking out” to the music of John Denver. A police who responded to the man’s apartment last week could hear Denver’s music through the door. The officer pounded on the door but the man didn’t answer. Finally the officer found out the man’s name from a neighbor and called to him, bringing the man to the door.
When asked why he had the music so loud, the man said he was “rocking out.”
The Reporter newspaper in Fond du Lac reported that the 42-year-old was cited for unnecessary loud noise. The ticket could result in a fine of about $210.
The late Denver is known for such hits as “Rocky Mountain High” and “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”
