Once again, because 9-1-1 is not a complaint hotline for whatever is currently annoying you, police weren’t too pleased with the Fort Lauderdale woman who reportedly dialed up the emergency line, alerting officials to the fact that patrons were intoxicated, says Local10.com.
She asked that police arrest everyone inside, ostensibly for the non-existent crime of adults of legal age consuming alcoholic beverages. But she claims she simply called 9-1-1 because she didn’t want anyone driving drunk.
Good intentions or no, she’s been charged with misusing the emergency system and possession of hydrocodone.
“I have a feeling that the mixture between [the bar] and the hydrocodone probably led to count two, the calling of the 911,” said the judge on her case, warning the woman to stay away from that bar and not to drink.
Just in case you need a reminder: Don’t call 9-1-1 if the sky is blue, if people around you are breathing air or if you suddenly discover the world is round. Sounds obvious, but you never know.
