Police: New Mexico woman placed fake 911 call to get friend out of traffic stop

ROSWELL, N.M. - Authorities say a New Mexico woman called in a fake report of a gunman near a convenience store to help a friend avoid a traffic ticket over a taillight.

Roswell police say 22-year-old Savana Jimenez called 911 Sunday morning hoping the officer who pulled over the car she was a passenger in would get dispatched to the fake crime.

Authorities say Jimenez called 911 while the officer was checking her friend's information.

Police say Jimenez later admitted making the entire story up so the officer would rush to the fake scene.

Roswell police spokeswoman Sabrina Morales says Jimenez told police she thought she had warrants out for her arrest, but officials say she didn't.

Jimenez was arrested and charged with obstruction. It was unknown if she had an attorney.
