Apr 23, 2013

Elaine Caris, 64, called 911 on April 12 and told dispatchers someone stole her cookies, a Port Clinton police report said. An officer arrived at her apartment and quickly determined there was no crime, prompting him to warn Caris about misusing the 911 system.   

Caris “flew into a rage” and screamed at the officer, ordering him to leave her apartment as she swatted at him. She then activated her personal security alarm, prompting another dispatcher to ask if everything was OK, the report said. Caris told the security alarm dispatcher that a man was in her apartment and she wanted him to leave. 

The officer issued her a citation and left the scene. 




I bet the phrase "thin mints" would be in there someplace. :D

Some of you commenters shouldn't be so quick to make jokes about this lady.

According to the Alzheimers Association an estimated 5.2 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimers/dementia in 2013. This includes an estimated 5 million age 65 and older and approximately 200,000 individuals younger than 65. By 2025 the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimers is estimated to reach 7.1 million and by 2050 that number is predicted to triple.

Nobody is immune to Alzheimers. Even the death certificate for President Ronald Reagan reads advanced dementia.
