SCOTTSDALE, AZ - A Scottsdale woman called 911 three times begging officers to help protect her from the strangers in her house, but police say her house was empty and the caller was hallucinating.
Marion Nixon, 29, was high on an illegal substance when she dialed 911 on July 31, according to a police report.
“There's a guy sitting outside my house,” the caller said, “there's one guy sitting on my roof and then there's one girl sitting inside my house on the computer.”
Nixon admitted to taking methamphetamine earlier in the evening, the report states.
Officers warned her after visiting her twice not to call 911 as there was not a real emergency, but she called a third time.
“I’m not trippin’,” the caller tells the operator, “they’re in my house.”
Nixon was arrested for misuse of 911 and public intoxication after she told a neighbor that the ‘strangers’ were moving through the neighborhood.
Scottsdale police told ABC15 that non-emergency 911 tie up a limited number of operators who are then unable to attend to real emergencies.
ABC15 was unable to contact Nixon for comment.
