A central Florida woman was arrested after she called 911 while drunk "because she was lonely," authorities said.
Fleurette French, 64, of Vero Beach, faces a charge of abuse of 911 after authorities responded to a a medical call on March 30.
"Ms. French called 911 for a medical issue as well as she had been drinking," the arrest affidavit said."Ms. French was in no obvious stress when EMS assessed her, she was highly intoxicated."
A firefighter/paramedic on the scene reported that she told him the real reason she called 911 was "because she was lonely," the report said.
She had also called 911 earlier that same day and four other times, authorities said.
"On each of the aforementioned dates and times, Ms. French was transported to Indian River County Medical Center as well as she was intoxicated on each instance," the affidavit said.
Online records show she was released from jail. But it wasn't immediately known if she had an attorney.
