TX Woman Calls 911 For Cigarettes


    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.
