Anita Lewis, a 53-year-old Vero Beach woman was jailed after she allegedly called 911 repeatedly because her boyfriend “refused to shut up.”
According to the Vero Beach Police Department, Lewis called 911 numerous times on January 31st because her boyfriend was “annoying her” by refusing to “shut up”.
On the third call, an officer was sent to the residence.
Officers arrived to find a man sitting at the kitchen table drinking beer – clueless as to why they were there. The officer gave them a warning to act civil for the remainder of the evening and then left without incident.
About 30 minutes after the officer left, Lewis called 911 again and complained that her boyfriend still wouldn’t shut up, and that he was now calling her names. An officer was sent back to the residence and Lewis was apprehended.
Lewis was booked into jail and charged with misuse of the 911 system. She was released after posting a $500 bond.
