Neighbourly relations pooped all in the name of partying

THE "family reunion" party at Lipu Lonnie Ingui's house went up another notch when some unwanted visitors showed up.

The cops.

Rockhampton's Ingui, 34, thought the best way to keep his party popping was to throw his neighbourly manners out the window for the night.

But his reckless attitude towards them and Rockhampton Police officers turned his party into a pooper.

Ingui pleaded guilty in the Rockhampton Magistrates Court this week to one charge of failing to comply with a noise complaint order after a house party last month.

On July 19, about 12.30am, police were called to Ingui's home.

Police Prosecutor Julie Marsden said officers turned up at Ingui's house and found several people at his home partying.

When the officers told him to lower the noise levels, including the music, he said to them: "I don't care what the police think."

The officers gave him a stern warning and told him he could be arrested if he failed to comply with their orders.

Ms Marsden said Ingui turned down his music to an acceptable level but the warning seemingly flew in one ear and out the other.

Police were called back to Ingui's house at 3am.

The court heard when police officers were called back to Ingui's house, he denied being the person spoken to on the first visit.

He then started being uncooperative.

Ingui's defence lawyer Shayne Studdert simply said his client was partying with his family.

Magistrate Barry Cosgrove reminded Ingui that neighbours had a right to sleep and police had every right to tell him to turn down his music.

He was fined $400.
