Troopers from the Girard barracks say that the woman who made the 911 call for a divorce called at 1:07 a.m. on Saturday asking that officers be sent to her home in Girard Township.

Police said that they explained to the woman, whom they are not identifying, that a divorce is a civil matter and that they couldn't just make her husband leave the residence because no crime had been committed.

Instead, they cited the woman for disorderly conduct and misusing the Erie County 911 system.

The 911 call for a divorce is only the latest of many previous crazy 911 calls. The website 911wackos.blogspot.com lists crazy calls that 911 operators have fielded, including one in which a woman was mad about a manicure, one in which a mother reported her son not raking leaves and another in which a man called for towels, chocolate and a hug.

Is a 911 call for a divorce that craziest 911 call you've ever heard of or experienced? Yes or no, sound off in the comments section below!
