Police: Woman Called 911 To Ask For A Pen

HOOKSET, N.H., (UPI) — New Hampshire police said a woman who has called 911 multiple times in the past month was arrested for calling the emergency number to ask for a pen.

Police said Jeanie Defresne of Hookset, who has called the emergency number 10 times in the past month, called 911 during the weekend and requested a writing instrument, WBZ-TV, Boston, reported Tuesday.

“I just want a simple thing,” Dufresne told the dispatcher. “A pen.”

“You want a pen?” the dispatcher said. “You dialed 911 because you want a pen? You do realize that it’s definitely not an emergency. You’re dialing 911, you are tying up a 911 line, so you’re tying up people who actually have emergencies because you need a pen.”

Dufresne, whose age was not reported, was arrested on a misuse of 911 charge. She was ordered held in lieu of $5,000 bond.

Police did not reveal the reasons for Dufresne’s previous 911 calls.
