A Chicago woman faces disorderly conduct charges after she decided to call 911 hoping to scare her boyfriend into proposing marriage.
Ana Perez, 40, called 911 Sunday night claiming her boyfriend was attacking her, but changed her story when officers arrived, according to WBBM.
"She called 911 to scare [her boyfriend] and have the police force him to marry her," Grand Central District police Capt. Ronald Pontecore told NBC Chicago. "It puts us in jeopardy and the public. It's not a good thing. It ticked the officers off."
The captain told WBBM that officers rushed to the scene thinking a woman was in danger.
Perez, who was reportedly hoping for a New Year's engagement, was charged with one count of misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
Police said her boyfriend was breaking up with her when she made the call.
