Will County sheriff's deputies said Geneva Ward, 48, called 911 Sunday and reported she was being held at gunpoint, but deputies discovered a different situation when they arrived at the Lockport Township home, The (Joliet) Herald-News reported Friday.
"When deputies arrived, they discovered Ward had wanted to drive her grandchildren somewhere, but the parents felt she was too intoxicated and hid her keys," sheriff's spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said. "Ms. Ward stated when she called 911 she said there was a gun because she 'just wanted deputies to get there fast.'"
Hoffmeyer said Ward was charged with disorderly conduct.
