Woman Locked Out Of Car Called 9-1-1, Claimed Infant Was Trapped Inside To Get Quicker Response
Locked out of her car earlier this month, a woman called 9-1-1 and claimed that an infant was trapped in the vehicle.
But when a sheriff’s deputy responded to a “priority one lockout” at the woman’s Florida home at around 9 AM on October 6, he “saw no child” inside vehicles parked in the driveway. The deputy asked a male on scene about the whereabouts of the infant, the man said that the woman “only said that to get you guys here quicker.”
After questioning the caller inside her Vero Beach home, the woman admitted that “she only said a child was inside her vehicle to get the vehicle open quicker,” according to an Indian River County Sheriff's Office report.
The woman was then arrested for misuse of the 9-1-1 system.
