Police: New Mexico woman calls 911 to avoid ticket

Authorities said a New Mexico woman called in a fake report of a gunman near a convenience store to help a friend avoid a traffic ticket over a taillight.

The Roswell police said 22-year-old Savana Jimenez called 911 Sunday morning hoping the officer who pulled over the car she was a passenger in would be dispatched to the fake crime.

Authorities said Jimenez called 911 while the officer was checking her friend’s information.

The police said Jimenez later admitted to making the entire story up so the officer would rush to the fake scene.

Roswell police spokeswoman Sabrina Morales said Jimenez told the police she thought she had warrants out for her arrest, but officials said she didn’t.

Jimenez was arrested and charged with obstruction.
