Epping woman rocks out again, but agrees to turn down the volume this time
Police were called to the music lover's Mast Road residence last Saturday to investigate a loud noise complaint.
Coffey is the same woman who made national headlines last year after she was arrested four times in 26 hours because she refused to stop blasting rock music that included AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
This time, Brentwood police Officer Chris Rothwell responded to her home just before 3 a.m. Saturday while assisting Epping officers who were tied up on another call.
She was given a verbal warning to turn the music down.
Epping police Capt. Jason Newman said Coffey complied with the order and there have been no further problems.
After last year's arrests, Coffey said she didn't think she was committing a crime by playing loud music to ease her stress over unpaid property taxes.
She could not be reached for comment and her residency status wasn't clear Thursday.
