Metro Louisville files lawsuits over false alarms

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Metro Louisville officials have begun filing lawsuits to collect thousands in fines against businesses and organizations that have frequent false alarms to which police respond.

The Courier-Journal reports 37 lawsuits have been filed so far and more than a dozen are pending against those with the most fines. Police Lt. Col. Ozzy Gibson said some of the fines have reached "ridiculous amounts" so the city decided to take action.

He said officials hope the suits send a message to companies: fix faulty equipment, and stop wasting police time and taxpayer money.
