Woman arrested for dialing 911 several times because she was tired of the store employee asking her to get out of the shopping cart
A Boca Raton woman was arrested after she called 911 multiple times from a shopping cart, saying she was being harassed by an employee who just wanted his cart back, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
Catherine Dajnowski, 40, dialed 911 while sitting in a shopping cart just before 11 p.m. Dec. 13 in the parking lot of the West Boca Publix at 9820 Glades Road, according to an arrest report. Dajnowski told the dispatcher a man was trying to take her cart, according to the report.
Deputies talked to a male Publix employee, who said he asked Dajnowski multiple times for the cart back, according to the report. A deputy told Dajnowski to give the cart back because it was Publix property, but when the deputy left, she dialed 911 again.
Deputies returned and told Dajnowski to stop calling 911 because she was misusing the emergency line, but Dajnowski dialed 911 a third time while a deputy was standing with her, according to the report.
Dajnowski was charged with misusing an emergency line. She was scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 16, but did not show up, according to court record
