Woman asks 911 to send 'cutie pie' deputy
ALOHA, Ore. - A woman who called 911 to get "the cutest cop I've seen" sent back to her home got a date all right — a court date.
The same sheriff's deputy arrested her on charges of misuse of the emergency dispatch system.
Washington County Sheriff's Sgt. David Thompson told KGW-TV of Portland it all started with a noise complaint called in last month by neighbors of Lorna Jeanne Dudash. The deputy sent to check on the complaint knocked on her door, then left.
Thompson said Dudash then called 911, asking that the "cutie pie" deputy return.
"He's the cutest cop I've seen in a long time. I just want to know his name," Dudash told the dispatcher. "Heck, it doesn't come very often a good man comes to your doorstep."
After listening to some more, followed by a bit of silence, the dispatcher asked again why Dudash needed the deputy to return.
"Honey, I'm just going to be honest with you, OK? I just thought he was cute. I'm 45 years old and I'd just like to meet him again, but I don't know how to go about doing that without calling 911," she said.
"I know this is absolutely not in any way, shape or form an emergency, but if you would give the officer my phone number and ask him to come back, would you mind?"
The deputy returned, verified that there was no emergency and arrested her for misusing the 911 system, an offense punishable by a fine of up to several thousand dollars and a year in jail.
Thompson said Thursday it was the first case he knew of in which someone called the emergency line for such a personal reason.
"That's taking up valuable time from dispatchers who could be taking true emergency calls," he said.

Oh yeah, that's big news here. One TV station actually interviewed her. I didn't see it, but the fact she refuses any more, I assume she made an ass out of herself.
Odd thing is, they showed her picture and she's really not bad looking.
I heard the tape of the conversation and frankly, arresting her seems like a little overkill. In my jurisdiction, they would have warned her to knock it off and that would have been it.

This S.O. does some strange things now and then. When they passed a law here requiring drivers to slow down to 25 mph or get a lane away from any police car that had another driver pulled over, they sit up a sting the day after it became law. The law had very little publicity and few citizens even knew about it. They set up a car with it's overheads on and were writing $327 tickets to people who didn't slow down to 25 or get over on a busy freeway. That got them a lot of bad publicity. There was talk of dismissing them all, I dunno if that happened or not.
They're a good LE agency and I know some great cops that work there, but every few years they do something that makes you think, "huh?"
