911 call asking for cigarettes leads to arrest

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

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. She was later released from the Hood County jail on a $1,000 bond.

The woman lives in Granbury, about 65 miles southwest of Dallas.

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