Police warn woman for misuse of 911 after she says her son threatened her

June 2, 2014

A woman said her son threatened her, but police determined what really happened was he wouldn't buy items for her and she became angry and called 911.

According to the Hales Corners police report:

A resident in the 10100 block of West Forest Home Avenue called 911 to report her son was trying to kill her and then threatened to kill himself at about 6:15 p.m. May 11.

The responding officers determined no such threats were made and that the woman misrepresented the story to police.

The woman's son said that his mother became angry and started yelling at him because he wouldn't buy cigarettes for her.

She received a verbal warning about the misuse of 911.
