A Florida woman is facing disorderly intoxication and resisting charges after she allegedly drunkenly called 911 to complain about missing crab legs and then threatened a police officer with chicken.
Lisa Matos, 52, of Fort Pierce, Fla., called the cops on Oct. 17, claiming she her roommates burglarized her of a bag of crab legs, according to a police report obtained Wednesday by TCPalm.
“Lisa informed me in a loud tone, ‘All my f----- food is gone,’” the responding officer wrote in his report of the incident. “I noticed that Lisa was intoxicated, displaying sign [sic] of slurred speech and excessive profanity. Lisa had red glassy eyes and a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her face and mouth. Lisa said she pays rent by purchasing food for the household. Lisa said she was very angry due to a missing bag of crab legs.”
The officer, who said he did not believe a crime was committed as Matos alleged, said the 52-year-old Fort Pierce resident “continued yelling profanity towards the surrounding neighbors and me” as he tried to conduct his investigation. That’s when Matos allegedly threatened the officer with a bag of chicken.
“While I was speaking to Lisa, she walked into [her home] and grabbed several packets of chicken. Lisa then attempted to walk away,” the officer wrote. “As Lisa was walking away she started to yell, ‘I’ll f----- get you, this is my f------ chicken.’ Lisa was immediately handcuffed and placed into the rear of my patrol vehicle.”
Matos refused to give her name to the officer, telling him, “f--- you, I’m not giving you my name.” The cop got her information from a family member. The 52-year-old was taken to the St. Lucie County Jail after being arrested on charges of disorderly intoxication and resisting without violence.
