Florida woman calls 911 for ‘medical emergency’ — she ran out of beer

A woman in St. Petersburg, Florida, was arrested last week after she called 911 to report a medical emergency that was anything but.

Fox News reports that Jennifer Sue Roberts, 57, called 911 on Friday to report a medical emergency, but when first responders arrived her only complaint was that she needed beer.

Roberts reportedly called twice in one day to falsely report a medical emergency– and it’s hardly the first time. According to WCMH-TV, she has made 28 false 911 calls just in the last few months, beginning in February of this year.

Roberts has been charged with misuse of the emergency system. It is not known if she is still in custody or if she has been released on bail.
