Sometimes, You Don’t Need to Call the Cops
April 24, 2013
I don’t condone drug use under the law today, and I CERTAINLY do not condone theft, but if you ever mix the two, DO NOT CALL THE POLICE. I’m sure this very nice lady thought she was just protecting her rights and property in doing so:
After handing over her last $50 to a drug dealer for cocaine and marijuana, a Florida woman suffering from buyer’s remorse called 911 and asked cops for help in securing a refund.
Katrina Tisdale, 47, explained to St. Petersburg police that she would be penniless until her next Social Security disability check arrived. Hence the pressing need to recover her $50 from the unnamed narcotics salesman.
However, it did not work out the way that she thought it would:
Despite Tisdale’s explanation for her two calls to 911 Monday evening, officersarrested her for misusing the police emergency system. Seen in the above mug shot, Tisdale was booked into the Pinellas County jail, where she is being held on $100 bond.
I know it sounds simple, and in the heat of the moment we all make irrational choices, but please, don’t call 911 to report that your drug dealer ripped you off.
