BREMERTON, Wash., Aug. 16 (UPI) -- Police in Washington state said a woman "learned that butt dialing can be more than just embarrassing" when a 911 operator heard about her "illegal activities."

Bremerton Police Chief Steven Stachan said in his weekly newsletter that a woman apparently accidentally dialed 911 from her pocket and operators heard the "very angry sounding" suspect talking to a man believed to be her boyfriend.


The woman was heard discussing "scratch tickets and illegal activities," leading officers to visit the address on Cherry Ave. where the call originated.

"When officers got to the area, she could be heard saying that she 'saw the police' and would 'not be going to jail.' She was seemingly clairvoyant, but that prediction was wrong," Stachan wrote.

The woman, who also allegedly tried to give police a fake name, was booked on an outstanding arrest warrant for trafficking in stolen property.

"The jail takes away inmate's cell phones, so she should be able to avoid this problem, at least for a while," Stachan wrote.
