Employee Gets Arrested for Trying to End Annoying Cubicle Music

miltonPerhaps your neighbor at work was told that he could listen to his radio at a reasonable volume while collating. Or maybe the guy in the next office cubicle got a Sirius subscription for Christmas. Whatever the reason, most of us have had to deal with people who need to listen to their music in the office and seem to have an allergy to headphones. But very few of us wind up in jail over it.

Philip A. Brigido, a former employee of Regency Technologies in Solon, Ohio, is among the few, the not-so-proud, the (perhaps) about to be jailed. When his office neighbor insisted on listening to her wireless radio during office hours, the 32-year-old manager used his technical savvy to jam the company’s wireless equipment.

This put an end to the incessant music problem, but it created a whole host of new issues, both for Philip A. Brigido, and for his company.

Regency Technologies, the company Brigido worked for, did not appreciate having their wireless internet blocked. They found it somewhat difficult to carry on their day-to-day operations without internet, due to it being the 21st century.

Brigido, for his part, may soon found it difficult to do much of anything at all outside a jail cell, since he was promptly arrested: not only for jamming the signal, but for possessing over $11,000 worth of stolen computer parts, and for possessing burglary tools.

There are several lessons to be learned here.

    1. First and foremost, if you’re going to steal $11,000 worth of computer parts from your company, perhaps don’t draw attention to that fact by disrupting your company’s wireless signal.


  • Almost as importantly, if you don’t like your neighbor’s taste in music, maybe discuss it with them before you do anything that might get you fined or imprisoned.



  • Lastly, if you have internet radio and work in a cubicle … buy a set of headphones.
