Ax enters neighbor dispute over music

A dispute between neighbors over loud music led to one being jailed for an alleged ax attack Saturday in northwest Spokane.

Brian M. Drake, 40, is accused of hitting Christopher A. Malcom with an ax handle after Maclom told him to turn him music down at their apartment complex at 421 W. Montgomery Ave. and said he would be calling the police.

Malcom told officers that Drake called him names and said “Payback's a b**ch” before swinging the ax at him, handle first, according to court documents.

Malcom reported injuries to his right arm and leg. Police said Drake was “highly intoxicated.”

Drake, who does not appear to have a criminal record in Washington state, was booked into jail for second-degree assault.
  

Man blames Ozzy Osbourne for arrest

CLEVELAND (AP) — An Ohio drunken-driving suspect is blaming his arrest on Ozzy Osbourne.

William Liston was arrested Christmas Eve in suburban Cleveland. WJW-TV says he told police officers, “Ozzy Osbourne and his music made me do it.”

Osbourne's hits as lead singer of heavy metal band Black Sabbath and as a solo artist include “Paranoid” and “Road to Nowhere.”

Liston is awaiting arraignment. He's to appear in court Tuesday on a charge of operating a vehicle while impaired.

In an unrelated case, Liston pleaded not guilty Thursday in Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County Common Pleas Court in a November break-in at a medical office. He was released on bond.

Telephone calls to the 33-year-old Liston's home in Aurora have gone unanswered.
