(Newser) – Authorities say a New Hampshire woman was arrested four times in 26 hours for blasting the AC/DC song "Highway to Hell" and other loud music from her home and for throwing a frying pan. Police first issued a warning to Joyce Coffey on Tuesday afternoon at her home in Epping. They say they were called back an hour later and arrested her for the loud music. Police say Coffey was arrested again five hours later. She was released and arrested again before dawn Wednesday over more loud music.

Police arrested her again after her nephew said he tried to remove some of his belongings from her house, and she threw the frying pan at him. Coffey was jailed yesterday and couldn't be reached for comment. WMUR-TV reports that a judge has recommended she use headphones.
