Noise dispute in Garner between neighbors sounds alarm with police

Amanda Lamb, WRAL reporterMay 22, 2019

A feud between neighbors in Garner has gone to a new level, with Garner police citing a woman last month for noise ordinance violations.

She contends the citation is a result of her race.

When Garner Police came to Mikeesa Thompson’s home to enforce a noise ordinance in April, the encounter was taped and she posted it on YouTube.

“We’re having a conversation with the music on, so, I’m not sure why you want me to turn it down,” she said during the conversation with police.

“At that point, it was obvious to us she was not willing to comply with the ordinance,” police Chief Brandon Zuidema said.
