An Ohio woman was arrested Saturday night after calling 911 about a biological need and asking if firemen could be sent to “put it out with their hose.”
Katrina Morgan, 50, told the dispatcher a specific part of her anatomy was “on fire” and needed immediate attention from first responders, according to an arrest report published on The Smoking Gun.
She reportedly repeated the vulgar claim several times before hanging up the phone. When a dispatcher called back, Morgan informed that operator her personal issue was still in need of attention.
Port Clinton police were sent to the northern Ohio home from which the call was made and found Morgan “highly intoxicated” just after 10 p.m. but seemingly not on fire, according to a police report. She allegedly made the call from a friend’s house.
Cops say Morgan denied making the call, but when the dispatcher reverse-dialed the phone number from which the rescue plea came, the “agitated” woman’s voice mail picked up. The recorded message allegedly verified the phone belonged to Morgan.
The police report said Morgan then resisted arrest, forcing one officer to threaten the suspect with a stun gun while his partner convinced the woman she did not want to be Tased over an ill-advised phone call. She acquiesced, was handcuffed and took a seat in the back of the police cruiser.
Morgan was reportedly brought to the Ottawa County jail and charged with a felony count of disrupting public service, and misdemeanor charges of making false alarms and resisting arrest.
