New Year’s Eve is a time for reflection, a time for looking forward, and a time for renewal. Of course, it’s also a time to indulge in something called “alcohol,” the effects of which you’re probably still grappling with today. But while we trust your New Year’s Eve was a safe, fuzzy good time, we can’t assume the same for Milwaukee’s resident former NBA superstar Latrell Sprewell, who spent the holiday in the safe, fuzzy embrace of the Milwaukee Police Department. According to the Journal Sentinel, Sprewell was reportedly getting his New Year’s party started a bit early Monday afternoon with the help of some extremely loud music—loud music that didn’t agree with his East Side neighbors. Two noise complaints were filed within an hour, leading to a visit from police and a subsequent arrest for disorderly conduct. The JS goes on to note that Sprewell’s River Hills home was foreclosed on in 2008, that his $1.5 million yacht was auctioned off in 2007, and that he was named one of Wisconsin’s top “tax deadbeats” in 2011. And while the specific tune Sprewell was blasting Monday afternoon isn’t named, we can only assume it was Springsteen’s “Glory Days,” or something equally depressing and appropriate.
