Waterloo man arrested for blasting air horn

WATERLOO (AP) -- A Waterloo man faces a disorderly conduct charge after he retaliated against noisy neighbors by blasting an air horn in their direction.

Carl Herold says he got tired of the "hippie tunes" constantly coming from across the street. The 62-year-old bought an air horn from an old dump truck last week, pointed it at his neighbor's house, connected it to an air compressor for power and started tooting away.

His neighbors called police within minutes. The arresting officer says he heard the horn blasts every few seconds starting about five blocks from the house. He arrested Herold when he refused to stop.

Herold tells The Associated Press on Monday he hasn't decided if he'll fight the arrest.
