Florida Woman Calls 911 Over Bad Manicure

Woman Calls 911 Over a Bad Manicure

One Florida woman found herself in jail this week after calling 911 about a dispute over her manicure. Apparently the lady in question, Cynthia Colston, felt a salon technician had left her nails too short, and called the emergency-only number four times to request sheriff's deputies come out to the salon. In the calls, Colston told dispatchers “I need to press charges. I just went to a business and they did not treat me well.” Because she called 911 repeatedly for a non-emergency, Colston was arrested for misuse of the emergency system. Her defense? Her nails were too long (in addition to apparently being too short), and she kept accidentally dialing 911 because she couldn't use her cell properly. Check out the video below to see what the police and Colston had to say:

This kind of issue would be so funny. I just hope the woman will be enlightened about the importance of using 911.  We do understand that calling 911 is for true emergency only and that could be a life or death situation. To this extent, when an emergency occurs, it is vital that someone calls 911. For my family protection, I registered them to safety program that has a direct access to emergency response services.  It is a mobile security application that has one-click emergency access to family, friends, and police.

It's great to see how far we've come as a civilized society. Maybe she shoulda let God handle it in the first place.

I seriously hope no real emergencies were happening while she was holding up the emergency lines with this ignorant mess.

Wow... I don't believe calling over and over was an accident if they have her on tape every time- talking to them. Some people get crazy over the holidays and need that extra attention. The last guy must have been drinking.
