Albuquerque man celebrates his success with loud glitches

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – Most people have someone in their neighborhood whom they consider inconsiderate. You have no idea what the people on an Albuquerque block are dealing with.

One morning in February, residents of a house at Ventana Ranch were booming music and setting off car alarms for setting off fireworks. After receiving noise complaints, the Albuquerque Police Department dispatched officers.

The officers had to ring the doorbell four times before Derek Lovato, 26, heard them at the door. “We’re out here with you every week. It’s pretty disrespectful, don’t you think? “said one of the officers when confronting Lovato.

Lovato goes on to say that he is celebrating all of his life achievements and that his neighbors should be delighted with him. “So you don’t care that you keep your neighbors on their toes at three in the morning with music and fireworks just because you’re a success?” asked an officer.

Lovato replied that he had no idea who would be affected by his celebrations. “I only live the way I want to live, you know, does it affect anyone?” Said Lovato.

One of the officers wrote Lovato a quote for the noise. Lovato’s case was dismissed, at least for the time being, because the policeman did not appear in court. Lovato has historically been written for road racing, reckless driving, and at least four times for speeding.
