A Tulsa woman was arrested in Iowa Wednesday night after getting too close to the Hanson brothers at a concert.

According to court records, Zac, Taylor, and Isaac Hanson, of the pop rock band Hanson, each had emergency protective orders placed against 25-year-old Alexandra Martin in June.

Martin is required to stay more than 300 yards from the band members and their families.

The petitions filed in a Tulsa County court show Martin would hang around outside the Hansons' place of business, hiding in alleyways and behind vehicles in the early morning hours. The brothers allege Martin would stalk, harass, and accost them. They also allege she would leave them notes and unwanted gifts--even the keys to her apartment.

CBS-affiliate in Des Moines, KCCI, reports the band spotted Martin at a concert there and police removed her from the crowd. She was booked into the Polk County jail and charged with three counts of violating a protective order.

Hanson, who rocketed to fame in the late '90s with their hit single "MMMBop," hail from Tulsa and have a headquarters downtown in the Brady District.
