Rude and Criminal

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indianapolis police say three armed men who broke into a man's apartment not only stole his flat-screen television, they forced him to help them move it down a flight of stairs. A police report said 30-year-old Jason Geminden and his girlfriend were asleep when three masked men armed with handguns woke them about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. The pair were forced to stay on the bed while the men ransacked the apartment, taking jewelry, electronics and car keys.

At one point one of the men ordered Geminden to get up and help carry his 32-inch TV downstairs.

Ohio woman jailed for calling 911

ALLIANCE, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio woman spent three days in jail for calling the 911 emergency line five times seeking a husband. The dispatcher was flabbergasted by the requests and asked Audrey Scott, of Alliance, "You need to get a husband?" The 57-year-old Scott responded, "Yes."

Told that she could face arrest for misusing 911, Scott responded, "Let's do it."

Scott was convicted last week of improper use of the 911 system and was sentenced to the three days in jail.
