And finally… silly crook, jail is for u

A woman accused of calling 911 to lure police away from her location so she could drive home drunk is said to have posted a message to social media stating: “lmao.. 2 mins later the cop peals out.. silly piggies tricks r for u.”

Police in New Jersey said they responded to Hayley Oates’ report of an assault only to find no criminal activity taking place, CBS New York reported.

Security camera footage also indicated no assault had occurred.

According to officers, Ms Oates made the call so she and a friend could drive home without fear of being caught drink-driving.

She now faces charges of filing false reports to police and creating false public alarm.

Wayne police detective captain Laurence Martin 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?”

“And then bragging about it on social media — that’s as dumb as it gets.”
