TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Topeka bar owner has been found guilty of disturbing the peace, and the judge says more citations could be coming if bars amp up their music late at night.

Topeka Municipal Court Administrative Judge Vic Miller on Monday ordered Christine Lopez, co-owner of the Brass Rail Tavern, to pay a $100 fine and court costs for disturbing the peace.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/I1982C ) Topeka's ordinance prohibits amplified noise that can be heard from 50 feet away from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m.

City attorney Chad Sublet says Miller stated that if anyone with outside amplified karaoke late at night in a residential neighborhood that causes neighbors to complain will probably get a citation.

The bar owners say they may seek an extension to play music until midnight.
