PUNTA GORDA, Florida (WBBH) – A Punta Gorda, Florida woman was arrested Friday night for misuse of 911, after asking dispatchers to send an officer she found attractive back to her home for some ‘extra duty.’
Police say the initial 911 call happened just after 6 p.m., when Maria Montenez-Colon complained that she wanted her Corvette back.
When the officer arrived at the Almar Drive home, he said Montenez-Colon was very drunk.
The 58-year-old immediately told the officer he was sexy and asked if he was married, according to the incident report. Then she started over-sharing.
The officer tried to steer the conversation back to the topic of the call, asking what he could do for her.
The officer says he told Montenez-Colon there was nothing he could do for you, and he left handing her a card with the department’s number on it for future non-emergency calls.
Less than an hour later, Montenez-Colon called 911 again, complaining the officer who was at her home “pissed her off.”
The original officer arrived, along with a second officer.
Montenez-Colon was arrested for Misuse of 911 and booked into the Charlotte County Jail.
“When people continue to abuse the 911 system you gotta take a stand, you gotta take a position,” explained Lt. Joe King, Punta Gorda Police Dept.
Neighbors say what Montenez-Colon really needs is treatment for her alcohol.
“She doesn’t need jail time, this is not a person that’s dangerous to anybody. She needs help,” said Richard Landowski, neighbor.
Montenez-Colon has been booked into the Charlotte County jail four times before, all in 2013 on battery charges and violation of probation.
