Strongsville Police Blotter: Teen Calls 911 Rather than Do Chores
Police reports from Feb. 24-27
Two 911 hang-up calls took police to a Whitney Road apartment about 10 p.m. Feb. 25 after dispatchers could hear yelling and screaming in the background.
A report said officers learned a 14-year-old had called 911 twice during a dispute with her father, who wanted her to put away the dishes.
Officers advised the teen on the proper use of 911 -- and that she should listen to her father.
