NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Police say a Middletown woman is facing charges after drunkenly calling 911 when she couldn’t find her phone.

Police say the 43-year-old has called 911 more than 75 times since March 15, mostly about non-emergency issues.

Police responded a Middletown apartment on the evening of Oct. 3 after she reported that she couldn’t find her cellphone and then hung up. Responding officers said she appeared to be heavily intoxicated and that when asked about the phone, she said she had found it and was “all set.”

When officers told her that she couldn’t call 911 for the purpose of finding her cell phone, she allegedly responded by saying “whatever.”

Police charged the woman with falsely reporting an incident and misdialing 911.

She is expected to appear in Middletown Court Friday.
