A Pennsylvania woman called 911 over the weekend to request a divorce and for police assistance in removing her husband from their home.

The unidentified 42-year-old from Girard Township, located in northwestern Pennsylvania, dialed 911 at approximately 1 a.m. Saturday morning to make the apparently unlawful request, reported The Associated Press.

After arriving at the scene, police found that no crime had been committed by the husband and he could not legally be removed from his home. Police further informed the woman that divorce is a civil matter and that by calling 911 for such a request, she was misusing the Erie County 911 system.

The woman received a citation from police as a result.

Misused of 911 is not uncommon.

In March, an intoxicated Florida mother called 911 requesting an officer to "scare the (expletive)" out of children who were apparently ignoring her demands.

"I need a police officer to scare the (expletive) out of my kids," the woman is heard saying on the 911 call, reported Florida NBC affiliate KSBW. "If you can't do it, don't worry about it. Don't worry about it."

The 911 dispatcher responded, "OK, but we're not coming out to raise your kids for you."

When police arrived at her residence, the woman was arrested for violating her parole, which prohibited her from drinking alcohol.

In February, a 48-year-old Texas woman called 911 to request a home delivery of cigarettes.

The woman, who was not identified, was also reportedly intoxicated when she made the call, reported the AP.

The woman was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor for abuse of 911.
