Oakland, Maine Woman Arrested for Dialing 9-1-1 Too Many Times
Roxane Marie Montgomery, 46, of Oakland has been jailed and fined for repeatedly calling 911. It's not against the law to call the emergency line for help, but it is to do so repeatedly without a good reason. This is allegedly the case with Montgomery.
This past Wednesday (Nov. 6) she dialed 911 and put the phone down, leaving the line open. When police went to her Hussey Hill Road residence, according to police, she appeared to be intoxicated. She was arrested and charged with misuse of E911.
Since January 2012, Montgomery has been charged with misuse of the Emergency 911 system seven, that's right, seven times. Police are obligated to respond to all 911 calls.
