Arrests follow noise report
Two Grand Junction men were arrested Thursday on suspicion of retaliating against a husband and wife who had earlier called the police on them for making too much noise, Grand Junction police said.
Taylor Reed Grady, 21, and William Laurence McCoy, 23, both of 378 Hidden Valley Court, Unit 2, were arrested on suspicion of felony retaliation against a victim and misdemeanor harassment.
According to an arrest affidavit, an officer was called to McCoy and Grady’s home twice within 20 minutes early Thursday morning after the couple reported loud music and voices coming from the men’s home.
After issuing a warning the first time, the officer issued Grady a summons for unnecessary noise the second time.
The officer returned to the home two hours later after the husband and wife called back to report that McCoy and Grady were banging on their door and trying to get into their house.
The wife said when she answered the door, McCoy tried to push the door open and he and Grady verbally threatened her and her husband, the affidavit said.
