Ohio woman jailed for calling 911 seeking husband

ALLIANCE, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio woman spent three days in jail for calling the 911 emergency line five times seeking a husband.

The dispatcher was flabbergasted by the requests and asked Audrey Scott, of Alliance, "You need to get a husband?"

The 57-year-old Scott responded, "Yes."

Told that she could face arrest for misusing 911, Scott responded, "Let's do it."

Scott was convicted last week of improper use of the 911 system and was sentenced to the three days in jail, which she had already served since her arrest. Seven other days were suspended if she stays out of trouble for a year.

After her release, Scott blamed the case on alcohol. There is no phone listing for Scott, who could not be reached for additional comment Wednesday.

Obscenities-laden jury summons gets man in trouble

YUMA, Ariz. (AP) — An Arizona man who bluntly expressed his displeasure about being called to jury duty has landed himself in legal hot water.

Timothy Michael Jones was ordered to appear Tuesday in court to explain why he sent back a jury questionnaire with obscenities written in black marker. He failed to show and Yuma County Superior Court Judge Andrew Gould issued a bench warrant. Jones now faces a charge of indirect criminal contempt, which carries possible penalties of six months in jail and a fine of up to $300.

Court records show Jones was sent a jury summons last month telling him he had been randomly selected as a prospective juror along with the questionnaire.

Mich. firefighters play MCs for fireworks safety

MIDLAND, Mich. (AP) — Straight outta Midland, it's F.W.A. — or Firefighters With Advice.
Actually, it's just three central Michigan firefighters who decided to take their usual summer fireworks safety message in a new direction. And that direction is a video that's found a wider audience on YouTube.
Forgoing hip-hop duds for firefighting garb, Mark Laux, Steve Markowski and Roger Bebeau do their best to drop some safety knowledge for Fireworks Safety Month — designated in June — and in time for the Fourth of July.
Lines include, "Being unsafe makes you think you're cool, but follow these nine rules, don't be a fool."
