HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP)- The owner of a Hagerstown-area sports bar says he's considering appealing a $2,500 fine for presenting loud, profane music that allegedly rattled the windows of a nearby home.
Paul Harp, of the Breakaway II Sports Lounge told The (Hagerstown) Herald-Mail on Monday that he's consulting his lawyer about the fine imposed by the Washington County liquor board.
Several neighbors complained about the music played at the bar during an event in May. One man testified he couldn't hear his television because of the noise.
The complaints prompted Washington County Commissioners President John Barr to propose that the commissioners consider implementing a countywide noise ordinance.
