Call 911 for smoke
A woman who wanted to make sheriff's deputies the butt of a joke picked the wrong number to call when she wanted cigarettes delivered to her house. It happened in Granbury, Texas and sheriff's Lt. Kathy Jividen says the woman was "very intoxicated" when she requested the special delivery. Instead, the woman got a visit from two deputies who charged her with abusing 911. She posted her $1,000 bail and is out of jail awaiting her court date on the misdemeanor.
