A 911 operator in Houston, Texas now faces charges after she admitted that she’s hung up on thousands of callers simply because she didn’t want to talk to anyone at any given times.
43-year-old Crenshanda Williams, for example, hung up on a 911 call reporting a man’s wife collapsing after a blood clot moving to her lung.
Another was a call for a robbery in progress. It took a second call and a different operator to finally get someone out there. By that time, a manager had been shot and killed.
When managers finally checked into her activity, they determined thousands of her calls were disconnected after just a few seconds, often with nothing more than an “Okay” and a click.
In one call, she’s even heard hanging up in the middle of a caller’s sentence with, â€œAinâ€™t nobody got time for this. For real.â€ She said this to herself out loud, as the caller had already been hung up on.
When she was questioned by cops, she told them, â€œ… that she often hangs up on calls that have not been connected because she did not want to talk to anyone at that time.â€
She no longer works for the Houston Emergency Center and appears in court next week on two counts of interference with an emergency telephone call, a class A misdemeanor that carries a punishment of up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine for each count upon conviction.
