(WPTV-NBC) A 45-year-old Florida woman who said she called 9-1-1 because she "ate too much food" was arrested following an encounter at a hotel, according to a recently released affidavit.
A St. Lucie County Sheriff's deputy on Dec. 18 went to the Traveler's Inn motel in Fort Pierce, Florida and saw a woman "jumping up and down and yelling in room #108."
A man walked out and said the woman was his girlfriend, Mary Ellen Lisee. He said Lisee wouldn't stop talking and that he was leaving so he could sleep in peace.
When Lisee, who appeared intoxicated and smelled of booze, came out of the room, she started yelling, "Are you surprised? Are you surprised?"
Lisee said she called 9-1-1 but said there wasn't a reason for a deputy to be there. Asked how authorities could help, Lisee started laughing, saying she called because she "ate too much."
Queried again why she dialed 9-1-1, Lisee said, "Because I ate too much food."
"She then began repeatedly yelling that she had not consumed cocaine in over a year," the affidavit states.
She wrote a "mostly illegible" statement, which a deputy asked her to read.
"My name is Mary Ellen Lisee. I have beaten, I believe in God, and He forgives me. I may joke, but I do not do crack. I will not for as long as I live," she is quoted as saying.
The deputy yet again asked why she phoned 9-1-1, and she said "because she ate too much tonight."
Lisee, whose listed address is room 108 at the Traveler's Inn, was arrested on charges related to misuse of 9-1-1 and disorderly conduct.
