An Oklahoma City man was cited for disturbing the peace after he banged on his neighbour's wall and told police the neighbour scared his cat by slamming a toilet seat.
Robert Eugene Burgess, 55, was arrested at about 9:45am on Wednesday on a complaint of disturbing the peace after his next-door neighbour, Dorothy Chrystal, reported he pounded on the shared wall of their apartment complex.
Police went to the building and talked with Chrystal, who said Burgess first started banging on her bathroom wall and yelling at 3am and then again at 9am while she was getting ready for work.
Chrystal said she doesn't slam the toilet seat because she never lifts it in the first place because she is a woman. The manager of the property said all the bathrooms are connected, including the floor above and below, and that it could have been one of those residents slamming a toilet seat. Burgess was given a citation and released.
