Woman calls 911 three times for 'bad manicure'

January 23, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
A woman from Winter Park, Fla., has been charged with misusing 911 after she called police three times over what she said was a bad manicure. It happened the day after Christmas.

Cynthia Colston claims that when she complained about the length of her nails, the technician exhibited aggressive behavior.

That's when Colston called 911. Not once, but twice.

However, it was the third time she called that caused police to make an arrest.

Colston claims the ordeal has damaged her reputation.

"You're standing in a grocery line and you hear people talking, staring, talking about she is the one," Colston said.

Police said since Colton called 911 for a third time, even when an officer was already on scene, she misused the emergency service and broke the law.
