Woman Calls 911 for Cutie Pie Deputy (Video, Audio)

A Portland, Oregon woman called 911 to hook up with a cute deputy.

A woman who called 911 to get “the cutest cop I’ve seen” sent back to her home got a date all right — a court date. The same sheriff’s deputy arrested her on charges of misuse of the emergency dispatch system.

Washington County Sheriff’s Sgt. David Thompson told KGW-TV of Portland it all started with a noise complaint called in last month by neighbors of Lorna Jeanne Dudash. The deputy sent to check on the complaint knocked on her door, then left. Thompson said Dudash then called 911, asking that the “cutie pie” deputy return. “He’s the cutest cop I’ve seen in a long time. I just want to know his name,” Dudash told the dispatcher. “Heck, it doesn’t come very often a good man comes to your doorstep.”

After listening to some more, followed by a bit of silence, the dispatcher asked again why Dudash needed the deputy to return. “Honey, I’m just going to be honest with you, OK? I just thought he was cute. I’m 45 years old and I’d just like to meet him again, but I don’t know how to go about doing that without calling 911,” she said. “I know this is absolutely not in any way, shape or form an emergency, but if you would give the officer my phone number and ask him to come back, would you mind?”

This, apparently, is just a little bit more than the law would allow.

UPDATE: ABC News has a video report of the incident including the audio of the 911 call.

    Why do I hear Waylon, all of a sudden?

  2. If there was just a prison or railroad track, we would have the makings for a great country western song.

    Any idiot knows she should have called 311 for a non-emergency date hook up.

    “If you’ve ever called 911 to get a date, you might be a redneck.”
