Country music star Gretchen Wilson was ousted from a New Mexico hotel over noise complaints.

According to the Las Cruces Sun-News, the Grammy Award-winning artist was forced to leave the Hotel Encanto de Las Cruces at 12:30 am on Sunday, October 13, for noise violations.

Las Cruces Police Department spokesman Dan Trujillo said Wilson and other guests had "worn out their welcome" and police helped security remove them.

"[Police] were going to issue a trespass card but the occupants agreed to leave," he said.

Meanwhile, Wilson said that she was "only talking" when she was contacted by the police and asked to leave the premise. The angry star later asked her fans on Twitter to "put Hotel Encanto out of business."

"Was a guest in Las Cruces NM yest & 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," Wilson tweeted.

She added, "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."

The episode came after Wilson performed at the 7th annual Las Cruces Country Music Festival.
