911, What Is Your Emergency?

Meet Sylvia Shumaker of Largo, Florida.

Sylvia had a few questions about divorce proceedings and instead of calling a lawyer, she decided to call 911. Because Florida.

A Largo woman was arrested Friday for misusing 911 by calling and texting the number to make non-criminal complaints about her husband.

Police said Sylvia Shumaker, 69, used 911 multiple times via text and phone to ask for things like a counselor and how to file for divorce. Police responded to Shumaker’s residence early Friday morning around 1:50.

Shumaker was reportedly “highly intoxicated” when being questioned by police.

Now I’m no marital counselor, but without meeting Sylvia’s husband, I can unequivocally suggest he gleefully accept the divorce.
