10. On June 24, 2012, a Milwaukee 911 dispatcher got a very distressing call. The woman on the other end of the line told dispatcher Keena Woods-Smith that her boyfriend was standing in the backyard with a gun to his head and she could hear a little boy saying to the man “Daddy, I love you.” Smith told the woman to hand the phone to the man and she told him what he needed to hear after he told her he was going to kill himself. She said, “No, no, no, no. I don’t want you to do that. I don’t know you, but you don’t sound like a bad person. You sound like a really nice person. If you do that, it’s going to affect a lot of people’s lives.” With that, the man put the gun down. The dispatcher then told the girlfriend to give him a hug, which she did. Sometimes, all we need… is to know someone cares.
9. Sometimes dispatchers believe they are getting prank phone calls. But if they have a little patience, they may discover it’s really a call for help. This one from a woman happened some years back from an unknown area. Here is the exchange:
Dispatcher: 911, where is your emergency?
Caller: 123 Main St.
Dispatcher: Ok, what’s going on there?
Caller: I’d like to order a pizza for delivery. (oh great, another prank call).
Dispatcher: Ma’am, you’ve reached 911
Caller: Yeah, I know. Can I have a large with half pepperoni, half mushroom and peppers?
Dispatcher: Ummm…. I’m sorry, you know you’ve called 911 right?
Caller: Yeah, do you know how long it will be?
Dispatcher: Ok, Ma’am, is everything ok over there? do you have an emergency?
Caller: Yes, I do.
Dispatcher: And you can’t talk about it because there’s someone in the room with you? (moment of realization)
Caller: Yes, that’s correct. Do you know how long it will be?
Dispatcher: I have an officer about a mile from your location. Are there any weapons in your house?
Dispatcher: Can you stay on the phone with me?
Caller: Nope. See you soon, thanks.
Police officers quickly showed up at the residence and arrested the woman’s boyfriend for domestic violence. Ladies, keep this in mind if you’re ever in danger.
8. In Fayetteville, North Carolina, Tiffany Segule was in her bedroom at the rear of her home when she started hearing some creepy noises. She grabbed her gun and shot through the bedroom door. But Tiffany didn’t shoot an intruder. She shot her husband. She immediately called 911 and tried to comfort her husband, who was hit in the chest, as much as she could. She told the dispatcher to please hurry, and she could be heard apologizing to her husband repeatedly. The man stayed conscious and even made a phone call to someone saying he would not be in to work that day. He was taken to the hospital and, fortunately, made a full recovery. Ok… I should not have to tell this to anyone who owns a gun… but I will anyway. Make absolutely sure you know who or what you’re shooting at before pulling that trigger.
7. Doesn’t it really piss you off when you get arrested and the mug shot they take of you doesn’t show your best side? Yeah… what’s up with that? Well, a Georgia woman, Tonya Ann Fowler, was arrested for some offense and later bonded out. Then her mugshot appeared in a local newspaper. She did not like that picture of herself at all. So, she dialed 911 to tell police she was not happy with the photo they took of her. Well, the police department was more than happy to oblige her and had her come in for a new mugshot – right after they arrested her for making an unlawful use of 911 call. Sorry Tonya…. I don’t think you did yourself any favors.
6. Operator: 911, Police Fire and Medical.
Caller: Yeah we got a problem here. My wife is struggling in her jacket and can’t get it off. I want 911 here immediately.
Operator: Is she not breathing?
Caller: She’s alright, she just can’t get her jacket off. I don’t want to cut it off, it’s a nice jacket.’
Would you believe this was an actual call made to 911 emergency? Yes, it was. But what’s perhaps even stranger is that dispatch actually sent a team out to help the man remove his wife’s jacket, which had a broken zipper. The actual call has been used for a dispatch agency’s campaign of “You called 911 for that?”
5. When someone calls 911 and reports a train accident, I guarantee you there are going to be a lot of quick attention to it. But when police and ambulances arrived at a miniature train convention in Essex, England, they believed something was fishy. There are the types of trains amusement parks give little kids on. Convention officials had called 911 to report a train accident involving three people who hurt their heads while climbing out of a miniature train. Apparently, there was a bit of miscommunication.
4. In Springtown, Texas, James Gerow and his wife and kids were asleep when they heard some strange noises in the house. James got up to investigate and found a man burglarizing his home. So he grabbed his gun, chased and cornered the burglar in his driveway. The burglar then hopped inside James’ truck and locked the door. The burglar was so scared that James was going to shoot him, he called 911 to get police there to save him. At the same time, James’ wife was on the phone with 911. Police arrested the burglar, identified as Christopher Lance Moore.
3. Ok… now let’s go to Clawson, Michigan… Oh… please, no… oh yes… yes, let’s do. Because here we find a couple really getting loud, and the woman yelling “STOP!” A very concerned neighbor dialed 911 and said the couple was fighting, the woman was yelling Stop, and there were really loud noises between their exchanges. When police arrived, the woman answered and said she was, indeed, shouting at the man to stop…. to stop passing gas….and so loudly. Police report that they “cleared the scene” quickly. I think this guy’s gonna wind up on my next “Psychotic Boyfriend” list.
2. In Barnstaple, England, a woman called police to report a car crash. As the officer answering the phone asks for a location, the woman starts to reel off these roads and areas with which he was absolutely unfamiliar. Finally, the woman said “You cannot be a local officer.” Officer Mark McWilliams then tells the woman she has called the Barnstaple Police Department … in Massachusetts… in the United States… more than 3,000 miles away. When the woman tells him she’s in Barnstaple, England, McWilliams says “Our response time is gonna be about six hours.” Well, actually, that’s pretty darn good if you’re doing it geographically.
1. Last January, Leland Doliente and Craig Holland, a couple of potheads trying to smuggle $16,000 worth of marijuana in a dog cage from Vegas to Montana, just knew they had been had by undercover officers. And there were cop cars racing back and forth all around them so they knew their freedom was quickly about to end. So Doliente decides to call 911 and say “Hey, we’re the dumbasses that got caught trying to bring some stuff through your border. Doliente even told the dispatcher that he tried to get some of the unmarked vehicles to stop and arrest them but they just wouldn’t stop. “All your cops” he said, “Are just driving around us like a bunch of jackwagons.”
The extremely amused dispatcher said an officer would be sent to their location immediately. Thing is, the dispatcher was so amused because police had no clue either of these men were transporting pot, and there were no undercover officers who had dealt with them. Score one, for big-time paranoia.
