When 911 received an abundance of calls from a woman reporting that her boyfriend was being mean to her, the police alleged that she exploited the system by falsifying her need for help.
Last week 40-year-old Mary Ann Parrish and her boyfriend were apparently not seeing eye-to-eye, and the woman was reported as calling 911 half a dozen times in a four-hour period to let them know that he was acting like a jerk.
When a deputy dispatched to the Lacoochee, Florida, home to investigate the reason behind the alleged barrage of calls for emergency assistance it was reported that Parrish again notified 911 while he was already at the location.
The deputy recorded in his report that Parrish was “not relaying any indication that an emergency was taking place” when she made the calls. He surmised that she, instead of her boyfriend, was the inconsiderate party for allegedly using the service in a frivolous manner.
Parrish was taken into custody and booked into the county jail for suspicion of misdemeanor misuse of the 911 system. She will also be kept from returning home to find out if her boyfriend’s sour mood has improved until she makes a payment of $150 bond.
