Man harassed neighbour who played same song on piano over and over again

There are all manner of reasons why a defendent winds up in court facing criminal charges – like one recent case involving a piano and a song on repeat.

William Mulligan admitted harassing his neighbour when he appeared before magistrates in Ipswich, claiming he snapped after hearing the victim in the case play the same tune for hours on end.

The court heard how the 50-year-old grandfather, of Brent Eleigh, had banged on his neighbour’s door in exasperation, before threatening him.

Mulligan, who was given a conditional discharge and told to pay £85 costs and £30 to the victims’ fund, said he was ashamed of his behaviour.

Chris Casey, representing Mulligan, said his client had lodged a number of complaints and had most recently been woken at 5am last weekend by his neighbour playing the same song on a piano.

The name of the track was not disclosed during the hearing.
