Authorities in North Texas say a 48-year-old woman called 911 to have a deputy deliver cigarettes to her home.
Hood County sheriff’s Lt. Kathy Jividen says the woman, a Granbury resident, called 911 on Feb. 11 asking for the cigarettes. Jividen says the woman instead received a visit from two deputies and was arrested.
She was charged with a misdemeanor count of abuse of 911. She was later released from the Hood County jail on a $1,000 bond.
Jividen says the caller was “very intoxicated” when she dialed 911.
Granbury is about 65 miles southwest of Dallas.
Anita Lewis, a 53-year-old Vero Beach woman was jailed after she allegedly called 911 repeatedly because her boyfriend “refused to shut up.”
According to the Vero Beach Police Department, Lewis called 911 numerous times on January 31st because her boyfriend was “annoying her” by refusing to “shut up”.
On the third call, an officer was sent to the residence.
Officers arrived to find a man sitting at the kitchen table drinking beer – clueless as to why they were there. The officer gave them a warning to act civil for the remainder of the evening and then left without incident.
About 30 minutes after the officer left, Lewis called 911 again and complained that her boyfriend still wouldn’t shut up, and that he was now calling her names. An officer was sent back to the residence and Lewis was apprehended.
Lewis was booked into jail and charged with misuse of the 911 system. She was released after posting a $500 bond.
