A lady in Florida was arrested for misuse of emergency phone lines on Saturday. Christine Lee Brown, a 51-year-old resident of Palm Bay, made the 9-1-1 call a total of six times in an attempt to thank Sheriff Jack Parker for providing her with a bologna sandwich during a previous prison stay.
Police were dispatched to Brown’s house and could be heard entering the residence during the sixth call.
Brown is being held on $3,000 bail at the Brevard County Jail Complex. No court date has been set yet. I feel like the cops kind of dropped the ball on punishing her though. Sure, she may be in jail, but that also means that she gets all the bologna sandwiches she wants.
