DELRAY BEACH, FL ( (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Delray Beach woman is facing a charge of “public order crimes — use 911 or E911 for false alarm,” after allegedly calling 911 repeatedly only to report there was no emergency. At one point, she told an officer that she was “sad,” but had no intention of hurting herself.

Bridget Rosacker was jailed Saturday night after police had enough of responding to her home after each call to 911. The following is the arrest narrative filed by Delray Beach Police.

On 8/13/2022, at approximately 2000 hours, I responded to 28 NW 16th St for a 911 call where the subject would not advise what the emergency was. Dispatch advised me that the same caller made multiple emergency 911 calls on 8/7/2022 in which she requested emergency services only to deny them upon arrival or want to discuss her previous behavior.

On the night of 8/13/2022, I made contact with the caller, Bridget Rosacker, who advised that she called because she was sad. I asked Rosacker if she had any intentions or desires to harm herself and she stated, “no, never”. I then advised Rosacker that her misuse of the emergency 911 systems is a criminal offense and punishable by arrest. I made clear that she should call 911 in the case of an actual emergency, but if she continued to call for no reason, she would be taken into custody pursuant to Florida statutes.

Rosacker was impaired but stated that she understood. Rosacker attempted to continue speaking about things unrelated to emergency services as officers left. At 2019 hours on the same night, Rosacker called again on the emergency 911 line to request to speak to officers she “has been dealing with”. I responded again to Rosacker’s home and met her at the front door.

I reviewed the call history in the CAD system and determined that this repeated behavior was not going to cease. Based on the above facts, probable cause does exist to arrest Bridget Rosacker for misuse of 911.

Rosacker was later released on her own recognizance. A court date is pending.
