From ‘Lego House’ to Big House: Woman Jailed for Playing Too Much Ed Sheeran
A mother of three from Howe Crescent, Willenhall in the United Kingdom is traveling from Ed Sheeran's "Lego House" to the big house — she's been jailed for eight weeks for playing too much of Sheeran's music (and too loudly).
Thirty-six-year-old Sonia Bryce has found herself on the wrong end of the law, according to The Birmingham Mail, after her neighbor Clare Tidmarsh claimed Bryce's household was causing way too much noise, including "shouting, swearing and banging — time and time again." And when Bryce allegedly played "Shape of You" on relentless rotation at deafening levels, Tidmarsh finally called the authorities, and Bryce was ultimately sentenced to the slammer.
Bryce was previously been jailed for six weeks in December for a similar offense. Her home's property group sought and secured a court order barring her from creating annoyances in the neighborhood, which she eventually violated multiple times, according to authorities.
Tidmarsh said the relentless "Shape of You" playback was “the straw that broke the camel’s back," and said she'd even considered moving away and renting out her property to avoid more of Bryce's incidents. But Bryce, all the while, claimed she "doesn’t even like” Sheeran's songs, and said her neighbor was just trying to goad her.
