Naperville, Illinois (The Weekly Vice) - Carly Houston, a 29-year-old Illinois woman astonished emergency responders when she dialed 911 to complain she "was trapped."
Trapped inside the jail at the Naperville police station that is.
According to Naperville police, Houston was arrested after she got into an early morning tussle with an area cab driver.
Investigators say a cab driver was attempting to ascertain the woman's desired destination when she reportedly "yelled, screamed, cursed and extended middle fingers at the cab driver" while threatening bodily harm.
When the driver dropped Houston off at a local gas station, she reportedly became disruptive and refused to pay the cab fare, attracting police attention and a subsequent arrest.
A police officer brought Houston to the police station and supplied her with a phone to make bail arrangements. Instead, Houston opted to call to 911.
Houston reached Naperville police dispatchers who say she pleaded for help because she was "trapped inside the detention facility."
Houston was booked into jail on charges of theft of labor or services, criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and making a false 911 report. She is scheduled to appear in court April 20.
