Woman calls 911 for smokes, is arrested

GRANBURY, Texas – A Texas woman wanted to make sheriff’s deputies the butt of a joke, but she picked the wrong audience when she called 911 to have cigarettes delivered to her home.

Hood County sheriff’s Lt. Kathy Jividen says the 48-year-old woman was “very intoxicated” when she requested the special delivery on Feb. 11. Jividen says the caller instead received a visit from two deputies and was arrested. She was charged with a misdemeanor count of abuse of 911 and released on a $1,000 bond.

Jividen says the woman thought it would be amusing to call 911 to place her order.
