    911 is called for help ordering takeout.

    How far would you go for Chinese food?

    A New Hampshire woman was recently arrested for calling 911 because she needed help ordering Chinese food.

    The 57-year-old lady initially called emergency operators claiming she required medical assistance. When authorities from the fire department arrived on the scene, they came to the quick realization that the woman only wanted help ordering takeout.

    After a brief investigation by the police department, the woman was arrested and charged with misusing 911. She was released on $5,000 bail. It remains unknown whether or not she got her Chinese food.

    Last year, a Georgia woman, Tonya Fowler saw her own mugshot from a prior arrest appear in a publication of 'Bad and Busted' and called 911 to convey her displeasure with the photo. She had also called earlier to request personal items be stored from a home she was evicted from.

    Fowler was arrested and charged with unlawful use of 911, allowing her to get another chance for a more flattering picture.
