ALLIANCE, Ohio (AP) -- An Ohio woman spent three days in jail for calling the 911 emergency line five times seeking a husband.

The dispatcher was flabbergasted by the requests and asked Audrey Scott, of Alliance, "You need to get a husband?"

The 57-year-old Scott responded, "Yes."

Told that she could face arrest for misusing 911, Scott responded, "Let's do it."

Scott was convicted last week of improper use of the 911 system and was sentenced to the three days in jail, which she had already served since her arrest. Seven other days were suspended if she stays out of trouble for a year.

After her release, Scott blamed the case on alcohol. There is no phone listing for Scott, who could not be reached for additional comment Wednesday.

    We have child molesters, murderers, and God-knows-what kinds of human waste that NEED to go to jail. But, no. We have to incarcerate some stupid woman using 911 to find a husband. By the way, its stupid behavior like this that may be the reason she can't find a husband.
