"The guy just started pa-rum-pum-pum-pumming away on his drum while everyone else was asleep," explained Police Chief Marvin Paxton. "It was such a silent night too. All was calm, all was bright, and then this drummer starts banging away on a drum. It was a real nuisance, so Officer Conway wrote him a ticket for a noise ordinance violation. We hope he chooses another venue to play his drum next time."
Chief Paxton says that a tuba player was also cited that night. The tuba player was accompanying the drummer with a pa-oompa-pum-pum.
