Police: New Mexico woman calls 911 to avoid ticket

Authorities say a New Mexico woman called in a fake report of a gunman near a convenience store in an effort to avoid a traffic ticket.

KRQE-TV reports Roswell police say 22-year-old Savana Jimenez called 911 Sunday morning hoping the officer who pulled her and her friends over would get dispatched to the fake crime she reported.

Authorities say Jimenez called 911 while the officer was checking her driver's information.

Police say Jimenez later admitted making the entire story up so the officer would rush to the fake scene. Here's a transcript from the fake call:

Dispatcher: "Where's your emergency?"

Suspect: "Yes ma'am, I just saw a guy walk out with a gun at Allsups."

Dispatcher: "Ok. He went into the store and he was carrying a gun?"

Suspect: "Yeah, he looked like he had one on the side and he was about to go in."

Dispatcher: "Ok. So you never actually saw the gun you just think he had one?"

Suspect: "Bye."

Dispatcher: "Hello?"
