Wait. What’s On Fire? She Called 911 And Then Get Arrested

An Ohio woman called 911 late Saturday evening to report that her…. you know what….” was on fire” and that she needed someone from the fire department to “put it out with their hose,” according to an arrest report. After placing that emergency call, Katrina Morgan, 50, hung up the phone. When a police dispatcher called her back, Morgan reiterated that she required first responders to come put her … you know what…. out because it is on fire. Morgan “appeared highly intoxicated” when cops later arrived at her friend’s home in Port Clinton, a city on Lake Erie. Morgan smelled of booze and was “having trouble walking, was slurring her speech,” police noted. After briefly struggling with the officers, Morgan was handcuffed and placed in the rear of a police cruiser. She was booked into the Ottawa County jail on multiple counts, including disrupting public service, a felony, and making false alarms and resisting arrest, both misdemeanors.
