The unidentified person whose complaint about loud music led to the arrest of a club DJ last week reportedly had complained to the director of the Illinois State Police before Springfield police responded.
That new revelation is contained in police documents obtained by 970 WMAY through the Freedom of Information Act.
The complainant reportedly called Springfield police three times to demand that something be done to address the pounding music that DJ Evo was playing in Marley’s Pub on the morning of December 3rd.
That individual was the only person to complain, according to police.
During one of those calls he told dispatchers that he had contacted the state police director to enlist his help.
970 WMAY News has not been able to confirm that ISP Director Hiram Grau was contacted.
DJ Evo… whose real name is Sean Layton… was arrested after police say he failed to comply with their orders to turn the music down.
