Boca Raton Man Allegedly Throws Flower Pot At Noisy Neighbor

UPDATE: All charges were dropped against Mr. Merollo.

BOCA RATON, FL ( — It is a crime that most anyone can appreciate and possibly understand.

A dog barks incessantly near the executive offices that we wouldn’t hate to have suffer from laryngitis.

But the difference between us and — police say Nicholas Merollo — is that we have learned to live with the noise.

For Merollo, the noise coming from a neighbor’s apartment in the area of 5801 Town Bay Drive — near Town Center Mall — was apparently too much.

Police say he threw a glass and a flower pot from his balcony onto the balcony of a neighbor because he was upset about the noise being generated by that neighbor.

Merollo was arrested and charged with two counts relating to use of a “missile” and a “deadly weapon.”

He was released on his own recognizance.
