OKLAHOMA CITY -
An Oklahoma City woman is facing a felony charge after being accused of threatening to blow up OG&E.
It all started with a look at the electric bill. Apparently, it was a bit too high for the customer. So, she picked up the phone, called OG&E and admits things got ugly.
"I remember flipping out, but I don't really remember what was said," OG&E customer Deidra Reed said.
Reed was enjoying her Tuesday afternoon until she learned she was charged with the felony of making a bomb threat. Earlier in April, police say Reed called OG&E and said, "I am going to blow OG&E up cause ya'll are charging me for electric I haven't used."
Investigators say the call was never recorded, but the employee on the other end of the line will testify against Reed in court.
"The detective actually told me he heard [the call to OG&E], so I can't really argue with it if it's me," Reed said.
Police say Reed has a history with threats. In 2011, she was accused of making yet another bomb threat. However, she wasn't charged.
Reed said. "I'm struggling to pay $40 a month for rent. How the hell am I to buy some bomb equipment. I don't even know how to make a bomb."

The call wasn’t recorded yet the detective told her he’d heard it. Lying cops.
I like her t-shirt.
Don’t worry, Deidra...if Obama wins in November, you won’t need to pay your $40 rent, your $16 electric bill, OR the purchase of bomb making materials!!
40 dollar rent?
Man, I’m living in the wrong place...
She managed to speak with a real person at the electric company’s billing department? I’m impressed.
$40 dollars for rent.
I was paying $80 - in 1954

She threatened the central computer system that’s why they’re taking this so seriously. Don’t threaten the system.
“”I’m struggling to pay $40 a month for rent.”
I’m living in the wrong state. You mean there’s a $40 a month place in OK. Living in blue-state mexifornia is so overrated..
I could see being married to her in my younger days.
Subsidized government housing, most likely. Same with her electric bill. It’s either that or unicorns and rainbows have graced the state.
Oklahoma is a great place to live, but it isn’t THAT cheap.
How many people run around....just tossing out comments in anger...about threats to blow something up? Out of ten thousand people....maybe one? The thing is way too many people are watching sixty hours a week of TV, and starting to overdose on stuff they’ve seen....acting this out.
As for the OKC...I’d have to agree...some parts are best to avoid entirely...day or night.
All of my ex-wives. Some of my former girl-friends.
And people wonder why I've become a celibate.
You’re overreacting. All women do that.
“Press #3 to leave a bomb threat, press #4 to threaten to go solar...”
At least she didn’t call 911 to complain about her bill; you’ve got to give her that.
On top of that she also would receive about $100 a month for utilities, plus food stamps. Ain't life great when you live on the plantation?
I am a property manager, I pretty well know what she gets. She's going nuts over a $14 electric bill?
According to her shirt, she must really love us. I hate able bodied free loaders.
Technically ? It does when you REALLY don’t want to be... for a VERY long time. =8-(
Reminds me of this stand up by Bernie Mac about black people threatening to blow up something:

WARNING...ADULT LANGUAGE (CURSING)
The tee shirt sure helped her cause I bet.
There are a lot of run down houses in OKC in bad neighborhoods, Think of an upscale Detroit.
Because cigs be expensive!
I'll second that.
Lived in OKC for 5 years.
She should have just announced a $10,000 bounty on the CEO of OG&E...Dead or Alive!
It’s all good.
War on Women!(who can’t scrape $56 together to pay a miniscule portion of their subsidized expenses.)
Obviously, I don’t care quite enough, or else I would send MORE tax dollars to this suffering maid.
$40/mo rent? Section 8 housing. Can’t handle a $14 electric bill? Subsidized by taxpayers. I’ll bet her cell phone is “free”, too. Imagine how much McDonald’s stock would go up if they could officially take EBT. Obama money takin’ care of her. I’ll bet there’s a big screen TV up on the wall in that house.
Translation: She was loafing around her $40/month subsidized house, watching her subsidized TV, eating her subsidized food, with plenty of time on her hands because she's still waiting for her subsidized job.
I'm struggling to pay $40 a month for rent.Since the real rent is certainly much higher, it means the taxpayers are paying the rest.
“WARNING...ADULT LANGUAGE (CURSING)”
Yes, it MFing is!
And then you can deal with her 6 kids and 5 ex's, too.
Never mind that. "$16 a month electric bill???
I've had electric bills that were nearly that much "per day!"
EVER BEEN TO MEMPHIS?
Perhaps she meant the “forcefully injecting breath” kind of blowing up. Well, that would be my defense strategy.
You mean the gubmit wouldn’t pay her $14 bill for her?
or chicken McNuggets.
