IRVING -- It's time for Time Warner Cable to pay up. A North Texas woman was just awarded nearly $230,000 for being harassed by robocalls from the cable giant.

Instead of going stark raving mad, Araceli King of Irving took her fight to federal court.

According to her lawyer, King got 153 robocalls from Time Warner Cable about a debt that wasn't even hers.

The lawsuit says King repeatedly asked Time Warner to stop calling her, explaining she had a new number and wasn't the person they were looking for.

Well, a New York court just ruled on the case. They found TWC "knowing and willfully" violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and awarded King $1,500 per call. That adds up to $229,500.

Time Warner is reportedly appealing.

We reached out to King. No response. But after 153 robocalls, who can blame her, right?
