Woman cited for calling 9-1-1, asking for a divorce

GIRARD, Pa. (AP) -- Police have cited a 42-year-old Pennsylvania woman for disorderly conduct after she called 911 requesting a divorce and police assistance to make her husband leave.

Troopers say the woman called just after 1 a.m. Saturday asking that officers be sent to her home in Girard Township in northwestern Pennsylvania.

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

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