Husband Won't Eat Dinner, Wife Calls 911

Ought to be a fun Christmas in this household. Maybe the hubby can get her some cooking lessons as a present. Or better yet, some psychiatric evaluation.
A Kerrville woman has been arrested after calling 911 when her husband wouldn't eat his dinner.

53-year-old Elsa Benson was charged with 911 abuse.

Kerrville Police say she has called 911 for non-emergency reasons 30 times in the past six months.

"The majority of our officers, if not all our officers, know this particular resident very well," Kerrville Police Department spokesman Paul Gonzales said.

Last Friday, Benson called 911 twice. Unable to determine what she was saying over the phone, officers responded to her home, where the Kerrville resident told officers her reason for calling

"She had called because her husband did not want to eat his supper," Gonzales said.

In recent months, police say Benson has called 911 because she couldn't find her clothes and because her dogs had gotten loose, among other non-emergency reasons.
