Linda White recently called 911 in Hood County, Texas, because she wanted a pack of cigarettes delivered (video below).
“I am deeply sorry for what I did. I’m embarrassed. It’s not me,” White told NBC Dallas-Fort Worth, but then added, “It is kind of funny.”
White said she called 911 on February 11, while drinking at home with her boyfriend, Gary Roberts.
“A few beers too many and then, next thing you know, we’re out of cigarettes,” White said. “And I didn’t want to drive to town.”
White identified herself as Roberts during the call, but then said: “I think I dialed the wrong number” and hung up.
“She said it was just a joke,” said Hood County Chief Deputy Biff Temple. “Well, we don’t take the jokes lightly when you’re abusing the 911 line.”
White was arrested and charged her with a misdemeanor. She faces a possible six-month jail sentence or a $2,000 fine.
