You can look into if your city or county has a local noise ordinance, but if the police refuse to enforce it that may be a problem. You may want to call the city attorney or district attorney to discuss the matter.

It is never OK for the police to lie. But you are not clear about what the lie is? If the police told you that this is a civil matter and the DA won't file on it, I agree with them.

Your beef is with the nephew. You can sue him in small claims court.

Yes, you are responsible. The window was not broken until you hit a ball and it struck the window, breaking it. Why would you think that you don't need to pay for it?

This question depends on the nature of the transfer. If she truly gifted it to you, there is an argument it is yours. If she merely intended for you to use it, then it may still be hers. But, as the owner of the plan she likely has an undisputed ability to suspend phones she pays for.
