An American woman has ended up in jail for New Years Eve after calling the emergency services regarding a dispute over her manicure. The woman, called Cynthia Colston, thought that her manicurist had filed her nails too short. She called 911 no less than four times requesting police to come out to the salon and settle the matter.
She told the operator “I need to press charges. I just went to a business and they did not treat me well.”
Colston was later arrested herself for misuse of the emergency-only system. She is now claiming she kept accidentally dialing 911 because she couldn’t use her phone properly because of a poor manicure.
