Sometimes a man just wants a little peace and quiet when he's in his home. Perhaps that's what prompted a South Los Angeles resident to threaten his neighbor with a knife for being too noisy in the wee Monday hours, as reported by ABC7. When the cops showed up, the angry neighbor barricaded himself in his home, and a standoff followed. The police tried to take him down with a Taser, but they missed. Ultimately, they got him out at around 6:15 in the morning, and took him into custody. Wonder if the other neighbors appreciated all that ruckus he caused?
