Raleigh Ordinance Cracks Down on Loud Parties

Posted July 17, 2000 7:00 a.m. EDT

— Raleigh police now have the power to make people party a little more quietly.

The Raleigh City Council adopted a new ordinance Tuesday that would crackdown on big bashes like the annual Brent Road back-to-school party.

Officers can now declare the loud parties a public nuisance, which means they can arrest partyers, party hosts and property owners.
