Here's Yet Another Thing You Shouldn't Call 911 About

Add this to the long list of things that do not warrant a 911 call: an annoying roommate. Junes Rose Gines, 20, of West Palm Beach, was arrested last week after calling 911 three times in quick succession to say that she wanted her roommate arrested for "bothering her" by turning the lights on and off and knocking on Gines' door. She was given "multiple warnings" not to call 911 again unless she was experiencing a "life or death emergency," the Palm Beach Post reports, yet she continued to call until deputies followed through on their threat to arrest her on misuse of 911 charges. She managed to dial 911 one last time while deputies were inside her home, the Sun Sentinel reports. (More 911 call stories.)
