A Slovakian woman was reportedly arrested after she played the same opera song on repeat for 16 years.

The woman, who was identified as "Eva" by Hungarian news site, was charged with harassment and malicious persecution for allegedly forcing her neighbors to repeatedly endure Giuseppe Verdi's La Traviata. Eva is said to have begun the opera-playing 16 years ago to drown out the noise of a neighbor's barking dog -- and never stopped.



"I love Placido Domingo," one woman told Hungarian news site, referring to the singer whose version Eva played, "But not like this!"

"The whole street is suffering," another resident said.

Eva faces up to six months in jail if found guilty of the charges.
