TX Woman Calls 911 For Cigarettes

Cigarette

A Texas woman is in trouble for the help she said that she needed when she called 911.

FOX News Radio’s Dave Anthony reports:

Audio clip:

It’s not a  typical call for help:

(Dispatcher) “Hood County 911, what’s the address of your emergency.”

But instead of getting an answer to that the dispatcher heard:

(White) “I need some cigarettes!”

That’s right. Linda White dialed 911 because she was craving a smoke. Then as the call went on, she thought twice:

(White) “Oh I think I dialed the wrong number.”

White says it was just a joke, but Hood County, Texas Sheriff’s Deputy Biff Temple isn’t laughing:

(Temple) “It does take valuable resources away from responding to actual emergencies.”

White’s charged with a misdemeanor and could face a fine and/or jail time.
