A Dunnellon woman was charged with misusing the 911 emergency system after making multiple unfounded calls to law enforcement.
Marion County sheriff’s deputies responded Monday to 11119 SW 107th St. in reference to two separate verbal disturbance calls made by 62-year-old Cheryl Peluso. The deputies determined nothing criminal had occurred and were asked to leave by Pelulso, according to the sheriff’s office report.
While they were standing outside, the deputies saw Peluso go onto her front porch and make a phone call. While she was on the phone, she was looking at the deputies standing by their marked patrol vehicles. The deputies then received a call from the emergency communications center saying that Peluso was on the emergency phone line (911) saying she wanted different deputies to respond to her residence, the report said.
The call taker told the deputies that Peluso was complaining the deputies on the scene were pointing and laughing at her and that she wanted different deputies to respond instead of them, according to the report.
Peluso was arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail, where she’s being held on $500 bond. She’s scheduled to appear in Marion County Court on Jan. 29.
