March 29 (UPI) — A woman in England was arrested after playing an Ed Sheeran song on repeat at high volume.

A judge determined that Sonia Bryce of Willenhall caused a “wholly unacceptable level of disturbance” by repeatedly playing the song “Shape of You.”

The judge issued her an 8-week jail sentence after neighbors complained she played the song on a loop for half an hour.

“You must learn that you should behave as a reasonable and responsible adult and not make life for your neighbors the misery that you have,” the judge said.

Prior to the incident Bryce’s landlords at Walsall Housing Group Ltd. had secured an order barring her from creating a nuisance or annoyance.

She was previously given a 6-week sentence in December after repeatedly breaching the injunction.
