Misuse of the 911 System



On Wednesday, November 16, 2005 at approximately 8:30PM, the Thibodaux Police Department was dispatched to 1604 Canal Boulevard (Malt- N-Burger) in reference to Sharita Williams dialing 911 because of her onion rings being cold.

When Thibodaux Police made contact with Williams, she told them that she had waited for her order and when she received it, her onion rings were cold. Afterward, Williams said she approached the pick-up window attendant and informed them of her situation. When the attendant refused to replace the onion rings with a new order, Williams said she dialed 911 to report the incident.

Sharita Williams (30y/o, B/F of 132 Senator Circle of Houma) was placed under arrest and issued a Misdemeanor Summons for violation of, “Misuse of the 911 System”. Williams was then released with a December court date.

The Thibodaux Police Department would like to take this time and remind everyone that the 911 system is for “EMERGENCY” situations only. However, if and when a true emergency arises, the system is there to assist.
