You can think it, but you can't do it.

An 84-year-old Northern California woman is accused of shooting at her neighbor's children because she said they were being too noisy.

The Redding Record Searchlight reports that Betty Frances Sanders of Anderson was arrested Friday, according to the Shasta County Sheriff's Office.

Sanders complained that her neighbor's three children, who are between the ages of 8 and 10, were being too noisy. The children were riding their motorcycles around their house.

Angela Rollins, mother of the children, told deputies that she and her husband were in the front yard with the children when Sanders and her husband approached the fence between their properties. Sanders complained that Rollins' children were being noisy. Deputies said it escalated into an argument and Sanders fired her handgun at Rollins and her family 20 feet away.

Deputies confirmed that no one was injured during the incident.

Sanders was arrested on suspicion of assault with a firearm and child endangerment. Her bail was set at $50,000.
