CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - Corpus Christi police have arrested a woman accused of making 35 bogus calls to 911 in one day from a motel when she did not need help.

Nueces (nyoo-AY’-sis) County jail records show 57-year-old Christina Turnbull was being held Wednesday on a charge of abuse of 911 service.

Dispatchers on Monday received the numerous calls from a woman requesting police and ambulance service to her motel room.

Officers contacted Turnbull several times during the day, found nothing wrong and eventually arrested her on the misdemeanor abuse charge.

She’s held on $500 bond. Jail records do not list an attorney for Turnbull, to respond to the allegations.
