Woman jailed for calling 911 four times to complain about manicure

A woman in Deltona, Florida who called 911 at least four times because she was upset about a bad manicure, was put in jail.

Volusia County authorities say Cynthia Colston got into a fight with a manicurist and was slightly injured with a nail clipper.

Colston says the dispute began when she refused to pay full price for nails that she felt had been cut too short. Officials say Colston made a series of calls to 911, even including one after a deputy had arrived to settle the situation.

Woman called 911 to get boyfriend to propose

A Chicago woman called 911, falsely claiming her boyfriend was attacking her.

She was not being attacked. She was just trying to scare him into proposing.

He did not propose (in fact, he was in the process of breaking up with her), and she was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
