A Chicago woman called 911 – to try to get police to scare her boyfriend into proposing to her.
Ana Perez, 40, from the city’s Northwest side, claimed her boyfriend was attacking her when she called the emergency number.
But when police arrived, she changed her story, admitting she was trying to scare her boyfriend into marrying her.
Police were not amused, and charged Perez with disorderly conduct, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.
Capt Ronald Pontecore said officers raced to the scene, believing a woman was in danger, “only to find out it’s something ridiculous like that.”
“She called 911 to scare him and have the police force him to marry her,” he said.
The boyfriend had no intention of marrying Perez and was actually in the process of breaking up with her, added Capt Pontecore.
