A Punta Gorda woman was arrested Friday night for misuse of 911, after asking dispatchers to send an officer she found attractive back to her home for some ‘extra duty.’
Police say the initial 911 call happened just after 6 p.m., when Maria Montenez-Colon complained that she wanted her Corvette back. When the officer arrived at the Almar Drive home, he said Montenez-Colon was very drunk.
The 58-year-old immediately told the officer he was sexy and asked if he was married, according to the incident report. Then she started over-sharing.
Montenez-Colon allegedly told the officer, “I haven’t been penetrated in years,” and “I am so horny.”
The officer tried to steer the conversation back to the topic of the call, asking what he could do for her.
Montenez-Colon’s response was “You can [expletive] me,” according to the report.
After telling Montenez-Colon that her request was inappropriate, the officer got her past the sexual advances and she told him she’d signed ownership of a Corvette over to her step-son after her husband died. Now she wanted it back.
While relaying the car ownership tale, police say Montenez-Colon repeatedly tried to grab the officer’s arm and tried to rub her hands on his chest.
The officer says he told Montenez-Colon there was nothing he could do for you, and he left – handing her a card with the department’s number on it for future non-emergency calls.
Less than an hour later, Montenez-Colon called 911 again, complaining the officer who was at her home “pissed her off.”
The original officer arrived, along with a second officer.
Montenez-Colon reportedly complained about the original visit to the second officer, saying, “He was a perfect gentleman, but when I asked him to [expletive] me, he turned me down so that made me angry.”
When asked by the original officer if she remembered the conversation about misuse of 911, Montenez-Colon allegedly said, “I do, but how else am I going to get you to [expletive] me?”
Montenez-Colon was arrested for Misuse of 911 and booked into the Charlotte County Jail.
“When people continue to abuse the 911 system you gotta take a stand, you gotta take a position,” explained Lt. Joe King, Punta Gorda Police Dept.
Neighbors say what Montenez-Colon really needs is treatment for her alcoho.
“She doesn’t need jail time, this is not a person that’s dangerous to anybody. She needs help,” said Richard Landowski, neighbor.
Montenez-Colon has been booked into the Charlotte County jail four times before, all in 2013– on battery charges and violation of probation.
