Police in West Palm Beach, Florida, arrested a 47-year-old woman for allegedly bursting into her neighbor’s home to threaten them with a gun for playing their music too loudly.

The Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel reported that Heather Mary Watt was charged on Monday night with aggravated assault with a weapon, armed burglary, burglary with a weapon and displaying a weapon during a felony following the incident.

Residents of the house described Watt as “clearly drunk and unstable” when she waved her handgun at them. They told police they were afraid for their lives and that Watt told them at one point that she was “from Texas and always carries a gun.”

As of Tuesday night, she was booked into Palm Beach County jail and held without bail.

Watch the Sun-Sentinel‘s report on the incident, posted on Wednesday, below.
