(Troy, MI) -- A Sterling Heights woman is charged with a misdemeanor for using the 911 system to ask Troy police for a ride home from a bar. Alana Sims was arrested at Joe Kools Bar on Big Beaver Road last Friday for making a false summon of a police officer and later released on 150 dollars bond. On the telephone call, the woman identified as Sims told the dispatcher that she shouldn't drive because of excessive drinking. Police call Sims' alleged activities a series of poor decisions and describe making calls to 911 for frivolous reasons a waste of resources.
