Woman Arrested for Calling 911 Instead of Plumber: Police
NBC Miami ^ | Friday, Jun 21, 2013

Posted on 06/21/2013 12:08:30 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Talitha Myrvil, 28, called 911 because she had water in her apartment and needed someone to co me fix her problem, Fort Pierce Police said.

A woman was arrested after she called 911 various times instead of calling a plumber, Fort Pierce Police said.

Talitha Myrvil, 28, called 911 because she had water in her apartment and needed someone to come fix her problem. But when speaking to the dispatcher, she was told to call a plumber instead of 911, the arrest report said.

Instead of calling a plumber Myrvil decided to call 911 again, the report said.

For a second time, she was told to call a plumber—not 911.

That’s when Myrvil pulled the fire alarm so that the fire rescue could come to help her, the report said.

When fire and police arrived to her apartment, she told authorities she had pulled the alarm in hopes of getting her water problem fixed, according to the report.

“Myrvil said she did not have a number to a plumber, so she pulled the alarm,” the report said.

She was arrested June 9 for charges including misuse of 911 and pulling fire alarm without a fire. It wasn’t immediately known if she had an attorney.

“Talitha?”

Sounds like an Amish or Mormon name, right?

hmm ~ however, let's say you come home and your basement is flooded so deep it covers your breaker box ~ your correct action would be to call 911 to get the fire department out there to flip the switch on the nearest transormer, or maybe one outside your house.

The problem is your home, although deep in water, is a potential fire and electrocution hazard!

In this case though it's probable the lady didn't know what a breaker box was all about.

Why should anyone call 911? Can’t the NSA just send someone over as soon as they know their’s a problem?

Bad headline. How about:

Woman Arrested for Calling 911 Twice Instead of Plumber and then pulling the fire alarm.

In this case I don’t think it was about the breaker box.

Right!

I have a problem and I demand the government come and fix it right now!

How dare you expect me to look up a plumber or deal with it myself...racist!

Let’s dig intop this a bit, just for fun.
Suppose this woman is on the dole - welfare, housiing, foodstamps, insurance, in other words all of her needs are met by government agencies. She is a ward of the state in every sense. How else should she be expected to act when confronted by a situation she cannot resolve? She turns to the only authority in her life. The poor chile was jus askin for help.

“Obama voter”

These are the same people who elect Gertrude Walker, the Supervisor of Elections that “ran out of time” and got Murphy elected over Allen West.

I'd suspect that, with your breaker box underwater, the water would have already tripped the breaker feeding your house (and those around yours).

She probably attended public school. Children in public school know all about “global warming” and that Obama is a “hero,” but not about problem solving. She probably can’t even read.

Actually happened at a church in the community. SEALED BREAKER BOX. This was a really high risk situation since the basement had several seperate down the stairs entrances!

You are wise;).

Flooded basements can be very hazardous - especially if you have never experienced the problem and/or how to cope. This incident helps illustrate how knowledgable electricians and plumbers have to be in order to work safely and effectively. God bless 'em.

It’s a wonder that someone hasn’t yet tried to scam people like this by publishing a direct phone number to “Obama” for solving all of their immediate problems…

That would be correct, it would short out.

She used her ObamaPhone to call.

It only needs a dozen or so contact entries: her dealer, a few baby-daddies, and her extended welfare brood.

For everything else, there's 911.

To many people in America that are entirely dependent on the government for everything. They are absolutely non-functional (compare to dysfunctional).

Probable? I'd say it's a lead pipe cinch.
