GRANBURY (AP) — A North Texas woman wanted to make sheriff's deputies the butt of a joke, but she picked the wrong audience when she called 911 to have cigarettes delivered to her home.

Hood County sheriff's Lt. Kathy Jividen said Linda White, 48, was "very intoxicated" when she requested the special delivery on February 11.

Jividen said White instead received a visit from two deputies and was arrested. She was charged with a misdemeanor count of abuse of 911. She was later released from the Hood County jail on a $1,000 bond.

White lives in Granbury, about 35 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

Jividen said the woman thought it would be amusing to call 911 to place her order.
