An Oklahoma City man was cited for disturbing the peace after he banged on his neighbor's wall and told police the neighbor scared his cat by slamming a toilet seat.

Robert Eugene Burgess, 55, was arrested about 9:45 a.m. Wednesday on a complaint of disturbing the peace after his next-door neighbor, Dorothy Chrystal, reported he pounded on the shared wall of their apartment complex.

Police went to 135 NW 9 and talked with Chrystal, who said Burgess first started banging on her bathroom wall and yelling at 3 a.m. and then again at 9 a.m. while she was getting ready for work.

Chrystal said she doesn't slam the toilet seat because she never lifts it in the first place because she is a woman.

The manager of the property said all the bathrooms are connected, including the floor above and below, and that it could have been one of those residents slamming a toilet seat.

Burgess was given a citation and released.
