Stereo Shooting

APRIL 12--A California man who used a shotgun to blast the speaker on his son’s stereo will not be facing criminal charges, according to prosecutors. The man told cops that he destroyed the speaker because his 24-year-old son--an aspiring DJ--“was playing his ‘disco’ too loud.”

Stanislaw Jarmolowicz, 53, was arrested last week on suspicion of shooting at or into a building. Jarmolowicz, pictured in the mug shot at right, spent about two days in the Yuba County jail before posting bail Wednesday.

After a review of the case, prosecutors opted not to prosecute Jarmolowicz, chiefly because criminal negligence could not be established since he did not intend to injure his son Anthony. The younger Jarmolowicz uses the handle “Baas” in connection with his DJ pursuits.

According to a Yuba County Sheriff’s Department report, Jarmolowicz told deputies that he had asked his son “several times to turn down the music or use headphones.” When the volume was not lowered to his liking, Jarmolowicz retrieved a 16 gauge shotgun from his bedrom, returned to his son’s room, and hit the speaker with a single blast.

Jarmolowicz told an officer that he had been arguing with his son for weeks and was “very stressed out” and had “lost control of his temper.” (2 pages)

what a blast!
Man, do I ever sympathize with this guy! Many's the time I wanted to do the same to a blaring speaker (and it's tuner or amp) and never had the guts. Noise pollution is unhealthy, degrading, distracting and lead to unwise decisions. Advice to the son: buy a set of headphones and blow your own brains out --- not your neighbors'. Kudos and cheers to Mr. Jarmolowicz!
Uh .... hmmm ... Wow...! LIFE does indeed imitate Art. REMEMBER .! The Tom Green movie ..ah..…uh .. With Rip Torn as Tom Greens father ..... FREDDIE GOT FINGERED ...... What wonderful family entertainment.
Disco is dead. Someone buy this man a beer.
Fire ON the Disco
Give that man a cigar!!!! Disco sucks big-time
He wanted more cowbell!
Disco? 24-year-old son... living at home... aspiring DJ... You sure he was aiming at the speaker?
Well, since there are no charges against him, he will probably have another shot at it......sorry about the pun....
Finally......a man that answers a problem the proper way.....if a shotgun isn't the answer, then re-phrase the question..... A tip of my cam cap sir.......
"baas" ? That's the dutch word for boss :)
He wasn't charged because his attorney argued that he was out of his mind at the time, he had Disco Fever.
