GRANBURY, Texas, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- A Texas woman was arrested for allegedly calling 911 to report she needed cigarettes, authorities said.

The Hood County Sheriff's Office said the woman called 911 around 1:18 a.m. on Feb. 11 and told the dispatcher, "I need some cigarettes," the Fort Worth (Texas) Star-Telegram reported Wednesday.

The woman could be heard telling another person of her plan to "call 911 and tell them I need cigarettes."

The caller gave her name as "Gary Roberts" before telling the dispatcher she "forgot how to spell my last name."

"I think I dialed the wrong number," the woman eventually told the dispatcher.

The dispatcher confirmed the woman's address before the call was ended.

The sheriff's office said deputies responded to the house and discovered the woman was intoxicated and "thought it was funny to call 911 for cigarettes.

The woman, identified as Linda White, 48, was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of suspicion of making an abusive call to 911.
