A woman was arrested after she called 911 various times instead of calling a plumber, Fort Pierce Police said.

Talitha Myrvil, 28, called 911 because she had water in her apartment and needed someone to come fix her problem. But when speaking to the dispatcher, she was told to call a plumber instead of 911, the arrest report said.

Instead of calling a plumber Myrvil decided to call 911 again, the report said.

For a second time, she was told to call a plumber—not 911.

That’s when Myrvil pulled the fire alarm so that the fire rescue could come to help her, the report said.

When fire and police arrived to her apartment, she told authorities she had pulled the alarm in hopes of getting her water problem fixed, according to the report.

“Myrvil said she did not have a number to a plumber, so she pulled the alarm,” the report said.

She was arrested June 9 for charges including misuse of 911 and pulling fire alarm without a fire. It wasn’t immediately known if she had an attorney.
