Some people just don't have a good grasp on how to use 911. There's a 54-year-old woman named Zelda Cotton from Tonawanda, New York for example. She called 911 on Saturday with a problem: She was trying to kill her 76-year-old boyfriend and couldn't get the job done.
So she sought out some advice and help. She was drunk and she'd already hit him five times with a VCR and was trying to hit him with a leaf blower but it wasn't working. He wasn't even hurt. The 911 dispatcher did not give Zelda any advice but did send the cops to her place.
They arrested Zelda for endangering the welfare of an elderly person and criminal possession of a weapon.
