MONONGAHELA (AP) -- Police said an intoxicated woman with a dislike of train whistles parked her car on some Pittsburgh area railroad tracks to stop trains from coming through town.

Monongahela police Chief Brian Tempest told the (Washington) Observer-Reporter that Bridgett Dixon, 42, was "sick and tired of hearing the horn blowing" though, he noted, "she doesn't even live that close to the tracks."

Online court records don't list an attorney for Dixon who faces a preliminary hearing on charges including risking a catastrophe.
