SMITHFIELD, N.C. — A woman was arrested over the weekend for calling 911 because her boyfriend would not give her any beer, according to WTVD.

Officers responded to an address on Fayetteville Street and told Crystal Spruill not to call 911 again unless she had an actual emergency after she placed the call.

A few hours later, police say Spruill called again with the same complaint.

Police then arrested Spruill for misuse of the 911 system.

Spruill was released on a $1,500 bond and will appear in court in November.
