Passenger calls 911 in attempt to get friend out of traffic ticket

SHARE Passenger calls 911 in attempt to get friend out of traffic ticket

Forget about trying to sweet talk the police officer into letting you off with a warning. Today’s criminals prefer to use the technology at hand.

Roswell, N.M. authorities say when 22-year-old Savana Jimenez’ friend was pulled over for a taillight violation, Jimenez resorted to some trickery inside the car. While the officer was checking the driver’s information, she called 911 with a report of a gunman at a nearby convenience store. The hope was that the cop would rush to the scene and they’d be free to go.

Unfortunately for Jimenez, it didn’t work. She admitted to making the fake call and she was charged with obstruction.

But why’d she do such a silly thing over a traffic violation?

Jimenez said she thought she had warrants for her arrest — but she didn’t.

So what’s the lesson here if you’re a criminal? Always know if you’re wanted by the law before you attempt to flee or evade.
