Woman Calls the Cops 15,000 Times, Gets Arrested

From this May to last month, 44 year-old Tomomi Monmae has been busy. Almost everyday, she's called the police. She even called them over nine hundred times in the span of 24 hours.

Website 47 News reports that repeatedly Monmae dialed 110, the Japanese police equivalent of 911, from her cell phone. She would often tell the police to arrest people she knew. She would also hang up before the operator could say anything.

The police visited Monmae at her home around sixty times to caution her about her excessive calling.

And this week, authorities finally arrested Monmae for interfering with police duties. Obviously, this woman needs help, and I'm not convinced she'll find it in jail.
