Drunk Woman Calls 911 Claiming To Be Olivia Pope

( 4UMF NEWS ) Drunk Woman Calls 911 Claiming To Be Olivia Pope:

Lots of women want to be the character of Olivia Pope, played by Kerry Washington, from ABC’s hit show “Scandal,” but one drunken college woman took that aspiration way too far recently when she prank called 911 and pretended to be the famous TV character.

According to Fusion.net, after an episode of “Scandal” aired last month, 20-year-old University of Iowa student Kelsey Cousins called 911 from outside the Sports Column bar in Iowa City and claimed that she saw the character of Cyrus Beene outside of the bar.

When police arrived at the bar, Cousins reportedly was “talking about ‘Scandal’ and a car with a bomb heading toward the White House.”

“Everything that defendant stated was nonsensical and rambling,” officer Brad Reinhard wrote in his report about the incident.

As police questioned Cousins, she reportedly revealed that she used a fake ID to get into the bar. Cousins was also found to have a blood alcohol level of .206, which is more than twice the legal limit.

Cousins was subsequently arrested and charged with making a non-emergency 911 call and public intoxication.

Let this be a lesson to others. Don’t pretend to be Olivia Pope while trying to prank the police. It won’t end well.
