UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: Ibrahim was arrested by an individual for LAMC violation 41.57. That means an individual demanded an arrest for a violation. Cops made the arrest and seized the property on behalf of the arresting party. Some residents call the police multiple times per day on noise violations, just to have the offending “band” turn down, and turn back up when the cops leave. This may be a new angle for residents along Ocean Front Walk that are at their wits end over the diminished quality of life caused by the constant loud music. We’ll see how this one turns out… its a shocker!

(3) in or upon any public park or other public place or property.
(b) The words “loud and raucous noise” as used herein shall mean any sound or any recording thereof when amplified or increased by any electrical, mechanical, or other device to such volume, intensity or carrying power as to unreasonably interfere with the peace and quiet of other persons within or upon any one or more of such places or areas, or as to unreasonably annoy, disturb, impair or endanger the comfort, repose, health, or safety of other persons within or upon any one or more of such places or areas.
The word “unreasonably” as used herein shall include but not be limited to, consideration of the hour, place, nature, and circumstances of the emission or transmission of any such loud and raucous noise.
UPDATE: This might be a private persons arrest… where an individual alleged a crime and is taking responsibility for the arrest ( or just report ). Still gathering data…
So twitter follower @radboyb sent me a quick update that Ibrahim, legendary Venice Beach boardwalk drummer and painter was arrested and all of his drums were seized. Not sure what the charges were. I can only speculate that he exceeded citations for excessive noise violations… it is possible that the drums will be held until the court date. Residents in the area have likened the musicians on the boardwalk to “Chinese water torture” – and noise violations are one of the most common daily police calls from nearby residents.
I heard a call by the Horsie Cops to have a beach unit assist them at Dudley and Ocean Front Walk and they needed a truck… assuming this was the case. The Metro Officers (Horsie cops) don’t take any schenannigans and don’t really care about the local flavor. If you violate the law, your going to get a ticket or get arrested.
