SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A Sioux Falls woman has been charged with false reporting after calling in a fake report of a person with a gunshot wound in the chest because she wanted to get in contact with a police detective.
The 48-year-old woman first called 911 Thursday afternoon, asking to be put in contact with the detective. Dispatch told her they couldn’t give the number. Police say the woman said she would call back. She then called 911 twice to report someone had been shot in the chest.
Police quickly figured out no one had been shot and that there were no threats.
