Indian hotel managers face jail time for Katy Perry noise pollution
Indian officials are investigating complaints of noise pollution from the Aman-i-Khas hotel where Russel Brand and Katie Perry recently tied the knot. During their wedding reception, party noise exceeded the 45 decibel limit, and that means someone is in trouble.
An official for the Sawaimadhopur district already said that the newly weds will not be charged, but that hotel management is not going to get off that easy.
To clarify, Wikipedia lists 45 decibels around the noise level of a conversation when two people are about 1 meter apart. The punishment for "talking softly" could mean several days in jail for the hotel managers who were on duty.
After the Indian wedding and reception, the couple flew to the Maldives - I just hope they have someone to help translate whatever the locals tell them.
