TROY (WWJ) – A 24-year-old Sterling Heights woman is facing misdemeanor charges after she called 911 for a ride home from a bar because she was too drunk to drive.
Troy Police Sgt. Andy Breidenich said Alana Sims was arrested early Friday morning after a night of drinking at Joe Kool’s Bar and Grill on Big Beaver Road, near John R Road.
“She called our 911 line and our call takers mentioned that it was an emergency line and she basically asked for an escort home,” Breidenich told WWJ’s Sandra McNeill.
WWJ Newsradio 950 obtained audio of the 911 call, in which Sims says “I need an escort to home,” before hanging up on the operator.
