Maria Montanez-Colon, 58, was arrested in Punta Gorda, Florida for misuse of the 911 system she said was the only way to get an officer she thought was ‘sexy’ back to her home.
The calls began on Friday night after 6 p.m. when Ms. Montanez-Colon’s first 911 conversation began with her telling the dispatcher, “There’s no emergency.” She then indicated that she wanted a Corvette back from her stepson, a car she had signed over to him following her husband’s death.
The Smoking Gun reported that when police officer Justin Davoult arrived at Montanez-Colon’s home, the woman was intoxicated. She made several advances towards the officer and informed him that it had been years since she had sex. Police said that Montanez-Colon told the officer she wanted to have sex with him and grabbed hisarms and tried to rub his chest.
Lieutenant Joe King of the Punta Gorda Police Department told WBBH NBC 2, “She got away from the questions and tried to get a little personal with our officer in which, you know, he had no part of.” Officer Davoult warned her about misusing the 911 system and gave her a card with the police department’s non-emergency phone number that she could use for such matters.
Not taking that warning to heart, less than an hour later Montanez-Colon called 911 again. She told the dispatcher that she was mad that the original officer turned her down and she wanted to see another. Davoult returned to meet another officer at the caller’s home and Montanez-Colon admitted she knew that she shouldn’t have called 911 but had no other way to get officer Davoult to return to her house.
Police arrested Montanez-Colon for misusing 911. Her neighbors say that Montanez-Colon is not dangerous and rather than jail time, she needs help to treat her alcohol addiction.
