Woman Calls 911 to Ask for Cigarettes Article

Texas woman Linda White, 48, was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of suspicion of making an abusive call to 911.

White called 911 and reported, “I need some cigarettes.”

She gave her name as “Gary Roberts” before telling the dispatcher she “forgot how to spell my last name.”

White eventually told the dispatcher, “I think I dialled the wrong number,” before she hung up. But the dispatcher had already captured the woman’s address.

Deputies went to her house and found White to be intoxicated and told deputies she “thought it was funny to call 911 for cigarettes.”
