There are several questions that much be running in your mind so before you come to conclusions, let us inform you that Carla Jefferson, of Pinellas County, allegedly called 911 to to harass and demean officers.

She allegedly calls to "harass, to cuss and just degrade" the emergency call-takers, St. Petersburg police spokesperson, Yolanda Fernandez, said in a statement.

According to Times Now report, police in his report estimated that over the last eight months, Jefferson dialled 911 at least 12,512 times. Her repeated and incessant calls accounted for 10% of all the incoming calls to St. Petersburg PD.

"This is not just somebody who's called police a few times or, you know, abusing the system a little bit. This is someone who is..this is just way beyond, we have not had anyone who crossed the line like this," Fernandez told Fox 13. In a shocking state of affairs, she once called in 512 times in a 24-hour span only to deliver “vulgar, threatening or obscene” messages, according to the precinct.


Netizens reactions 

Social media users were bewildered after learning about this piece of news. Some of them found it funny, others absolutely uncalled for. "She looks so pleased with herself too lmao," wrote a user.

This is not the first time, Jefferson was arrested earlier in June for the same offence and is currently out on bond. Earlier she was sent a notice of warning to not continue with the calls as it will result in prosecution. However, after she received the affidavit, she called the precinct and reportedly insisted the police arrest her because she "loves playing this game."
