Quebec Man Threatens to Bring Rifle to a Journey Concert Because They’re TOO LOUD!

Thousands have descended on the Plains of Abraham for the annual Festival d’été de Québec which runs until the 13th.  It’s a fantastic event that attracts people from all over–which did not sit well with one man who lives across the river in Levis.

This gentlemen–he’s in his 50s, apparently–called 911 complaining that Sunday night’s set by Journey was JUST TOO DAMN LOUD and if someone didn’t do something about it, he was going to head over to the festival with a rifle.  This is probably something you shouldn’t say to a 911 operator.

Police took this threat very seriously and tracked the dude down at his house at about 2am Sunday.  He was supposed to appear in court Monday and could be charged with uttering death threats.

The Killers, Deadmau5, Queens of the Stone Age and Soundgarden play that same stage before things wrap up on Sunday.
