Gretchen Wilson was kicked out of a New Mexico hotel room last night for being too loud.

Gretchen herself took to Twitter after the incident. She wrote, “Was a guest in Las Cruces NM yest[erday] & had a blast w/ the people there. However, you should all band together to put Hotel Encanto out of business. Had to wait 2 hrs for breakfast. Then they sent police to kick me out in the middle of the night for no reason. I complied. Home early. I got off stage at 11:30pm. At 12:30pm I was only talking in my room. The hotel informed me that QUIET HOURS started at 10pm. Wrong hotel for 3rd shifters.”

In a 911 call obtained by ABC-7, an employee said she did not comply with hotel rules.

“We went up there multiple times in the past half hour,” the employee said in the 911 audio. “So, then I went up there and she said that she was a celebrity, but I forgot to get her name. Apparently, Gretchen something. She just played in the Country Music Festival.”

A police spokesman confirmed officers responded at about 3:30 a.m. However, they say she left on her own.

“The individuals, the guests of the hotel voluntarily decided to leave,” said Dan Trujillo, the spokesman for the police department. “From what I understand, (it was) Ms. Wilson and/or her entourage.”

The manager told the dispatcher that Wilson was not playing music, she was just “being super loud.”
