    I was arrested for breaching AVO verbally with neighbour over them making false noise complaint to NSW Police. I was not listening to loud music. The stereo wasn't on.

    Hi Jason,

    If your neighbour has an AVO against you, having a verbal argument with the neighbours, even if the argument is about something where you were not at fault, could breach your AVO conditions. Of course, it all depends on what conditions are placed on your AVO. This could be why you were arrested: for breaching your AVO conditions, and not for causing any noise leading to the noise complaint.

    I assume this is your question.
