Woman arrested for calling 911 while cop was at her house

A Tampa, Florida woman landed in jail Monday after calling 911 while a police deputy was investigating a dispute at her house.

Desire Dominique Davis was being held in jail for abusingthe 911 system with bail set at $1,000. She was also charged with resisting arrest. The deputy responded to Davis' home at 11:02 p.m. to investigate "a possible battery and civil issue." Davis became "irate and argumentative and started screaming and waving her arms." This was reported to be her third arrest for obstructing an officer.

The deputy asked Davis several times to walk away and stop interfering with the inquiry, but she refused. Instead, Davis called 911. The 911 call was considered abuse of the 911 system because there was no emergency.
