MONONGAHELA — Police say a drunk and disorderly woman so dislikes train whistles that she parked her car on some southwestern Pennsylvania railroad tracks to stop trains from coming through town.
Monongahela police Chief Brian Tempest tells the (Washington) Observer-Reporter that 42-year-old Bridgett Dixon was "sick and tired of hearing the horn blowing" though, he noted, "she doesn't even live that close to the tracks."
Police found Dixon's car parked on the tracks, with the driver's door open and no keys in the ignition, about 11:30 Friday night. They found it after responding to a report of a woman screaming at a convenience store that her car was stuck on the tracks.
Online court records don't list an attorney for Dixon who faces a preliminary hearing March 2 on charges including risking a catastrophe.
