Police say Hayley Oates, 25, distracted the department with a fake emergency call around 3:15 a.m.
Woman arrested after calling police 'Silly Piggies' on social media
Police in New Jersey, America have arrested a woman after she referred to the police as 'Silly Piggies' on social media.
Officers responded to a report of a woman being attacked in the parking lot of a house, but found no disturbance.
After seeing them leaving the house, Oates hopped on social media to write “lmao.. 2 mins later the police peals out..silly piggies tricks are for u,” NJ.com reports.
The audacious comment helped police track down Oates, authorities said.
“You’re misusing the system. You have 911 personnel that are answering the call. You have police officers that should be doing other things, are now responding to a call that’s false so that you can drive away drunk?” said Wayne police Detective Capt. Laurence Martin, according to CBS New York.
“And then bragging about it on social media — that’s as dumb as it gets.”
Oates was arrested and charged with filing false reports to law enforcement and creating a false public alarm.
