Woman Arrested For Calling 911 For Cigarettes

A human interest story, via the Associated Press:

Texas woman arrested after calling 911 for cigarettes, police say

February 20, 2013

GRANBURY, Texas – Authorities in North Texas say a 48-year-old woman called 911 to have a deputy deliver cigarettes to her home.

Not crack? Or even Chicken McNuggets?

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.

What are the local ordinances there? Maybe she was arrested for trying to buy cigarettes.

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.

That’s a shock. Still, maybe it means we need more stringent telephone control laws.

Granbury is about 65 miles southwest of Dallas.

Of course, the real shock here is that this didn’t happen in Florida. Then again, such behavior probably wouldn’t even be noticed in Florida.

  1. I’m guessing … inner city? LowFo?

  2. I would, and have walked a mile for a Camel. Took a while, but that’s neither here nor there. How drunk do you have to be to call 911 for cigarette delivery? I don’t believe it is humanly possible to drink yourself that stupid. Why do they always try to blame alcohol for the stupidity of someone who probably started sober with the IQ of an oatmeal cookie.
