A woman from Old Town, Maine, who kept calling 911, was warned several times by dispatchers to stop making frivolous emergency calls. Police said that in just an hour, Shirley Isacson, 66, made ten 911 calls, but “She was not reporting any type of emergency.” When officers arrived to warn her in person, she called 911 to complain police were at the door “harassing” her. When the calls didn’t stop after that, she was arrested. Her response, police say: “She tried to call 911 again.” (JW/Bangor Daily News) ...Yet every time she wanted to call 911, she had to look up the number.
