Creatively Using 9-1-1 to Get Out of Traffic Offenses

Every time we hear about peopleĀ using 9-1-1 to complain about crappy fast food service, we mostly only laugh for a second at the caller’s sheer stupidity.

However, we are certainly marveling at a Wuakesha WI woman’s creative use of 9-1-1 calls: when Aisha Jackson was pulled over for a traffic offense she dialed 9-1-1 to report a more severe emergency. The more severe emergency would certainly take priority over a minor traffic offense, which would meant the officer who just pulled her over was obligated to respond. Clever woman, but not clever enough.

Jackson was eventually arrested and jailed suspicion of misusing emergency services.
