MASON CITY – A Mason City woman called 911 at least 10 times Thursday evening, and police didn’t take too kindly to it.
According to police, 63-year-old Alma Melinda Shafer, dialed 911 at least 10 times on the evening of November 6. A dispatcher continued taking the calls, and officers were sent to her home at the 200 block of the 6th Street SE. After an investigation, Shafer was arrested and taken to jail for dialing 911 with no emergency. Alcohol may have been a factor in the incident. She was jailed and soon released.
Shafer pled guilty last year to the same crime, dialing 911 with no emergency, after being charged by Mason City police. She was fined for her actions.
