Dispatcher Recounts Time Woman Called 911 to ‘Order Pizza,’ Report Abuse
A post in the Reddit discussion of 911 dispatchers describing memorable calls is going viral.
Redditor ‘Crux1836’ says one call first sounded like a prank, but turned out to be very serious.
Read the account of the call below:
DISPATCHER: “911, where is you emergency?”
CALLER: “123 Main St.”
DISPATCHER: “Ok, what’s going on there?”
CALLER: “I’d like to order a pizza for delivery.” (oh great, another prank call).
DISPATCHER: “Ma’am, you’ve reached 911”
CALLER: “Yeah, I know. Can I have a large with half pepperoni, half mushroom and peppers?”
DISPATCHER: “Ummm…. I’m sorry, you know you’ve called 911 right?”
CALLER: “Yeah, do you know how long it will be?”
DISPATCHER: “Ok, Ma’am, is everything ok over there? do you have an emergency?”
CALLER: “Yes, I do.”
DISPATCHER: “..And you can’t talk about it because there’s someone in the room with you?” (moment of realization)
CALLER: “Yes, that’s correct. Do you know how long it will be?”
DISPATCHER: “I have an officer about a mile from your location. Are there any weapons in your house?”
DISPATCHER: “Can you stay on the phone with me?”
CALLER: “Nope. See you soon, thanks”
According to the dispatcher, there had been a history of domestic violence calls from that address. When officers responded, the woman’s boyfriend was arrested.
