Brilliant Domestic Abuse Victim Calls 911 to Order Pizza, Tricks Abuser
We have one word for this woman: Brilliant! A victim of domestic abuse dialed 911, and pretended to order a pizza in order to summon police. It took the 911 operator a moment to catch on, but he did -- and shared the conversation on Reddit in a thread about memorable 911 calls.
“911, where is you emergency?
123 Main St.
Ok, what’s going on there?
I’d like to order a pizza for delivery. (oh great, another prank call).
Ma’am, you’ve reached 911.
Yeah, I know. Can I have a large with half pepperoni, half mushroom and peppers?
Ummm…. I’m sorry, you know you’ve called 911 right?
Yeah, do you know how long it will be?
Ok, Ma’am, is everything ok over there? do you have an emergency?
Yes, I do.
..And you can’t talk about it because there’s someone in the room with you? (moment of realization)
Yes, that’s correct. Do you know how long it will be?
I have an officer about a mile from your location. Are there any weapons in your house?
Can you stay on the phone with me?
Nope. See you soon, thanks."
The 911 operator went on to say, "As we dispatch the call, I check the history at the address, and see there are multiple previous domestic violence calls. The officer arrives and finds a couple, female was kind of banged up, and boyfriend was drunk. Officer arrests him after she explains that the boyfriend had been beating her for a while. I thought she was pretty clever to use that trick. Definitely one of the most memorable calls.”
Domestic violence is no joke. If you, or someone you know is a victim of domestic abuse, don't hesitate to alert authorities.
