Tonawanda Woman Asks 911 Operator for Help with a Murder

This woman REALLY misinterpreted how 911 works.

There’s a 54-year-old woman named Zelda Cotton from Tonawanda, New York.  And she called 911 on Saturday with a problem:  She was trying to KILL her 76-year-old boyfriend, couldn’t get the job done, and needed some advice.

She was drunk and she’d already hit him five times with a VCR and was trying to hit him with a leaf blower . . . but it wasn’t working.  He wasn’t even hurt.

The 911 dispatcher did NOT give Zelda any advice . . . but DID send the cops to her place.

They arrested Zelda for endangering the welfare of an elderly person and criminal possession of a weapon.
