DPD officers ticket BD, send obscene email over noise complaint

Dallas.org - May 21, 2006

Tension between bar owners and neighborhood residents are nothing new on Lower Greenville. So it should come as no surprise that when Suede Bar and Grill opened what they claimed to be the "biggest rooftop bar patio in Texas" complete with live music, someone was bound to call the police.

When the bar turned up the music, Avi Adelman, of BarkingDogs.org fame, complained.

But instead of the peace and quiet he hoped to find, Adelman ended up getting a ticket himself.

A little over an hour later, Adelman received a profanity-laced email. The sender was traced back to a computer at the Dallas Police Department's Central Operations Division.
