Bad call? A Michigan driver was arrested after drunk-dialing 911 following an argument with her boyfriend, according to authorities.
The Leelanau County Sheriff's Office said the 23-year-old called 911 at around 4:30 a.m. while driving through Peshawbestown — a city about 150 miles north of Grand Rapids — to request an officer.
“Dispatchers couldn't understand what the woman needed and believed that she sounded intoxicated,” the sheriff's office said in a statement, adding that the call was disconnected and numerous attempts to call her back were unsuccessful.
The driver later pulled into a driveway where a deputy was located and the deputy observed that the woman appeared to be drunk, the sheriff's office said. It added that the woman told the deputy she had called 911 after arguing with her boyfriend.
The woman — who has not been named — was arrested after failing a sobriety test. The suspect was released after posting bond later that day, the sheriff's office added.
