FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A Cumming woman was arrested for excessively calling 911 after she contacted authorities dozens of times on Aug. 21.

Karoline Jennifer Hinga, 45, was charged with improper use of 911. Deputies said she called the Sheriff’s Office 28 times. Fifteen of those calls were to 911 and none were for legitimate law enforcement purposes, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies tried to explain to Hinga that calling 911 when there’s no emergency is dangerous. She told officers each time that she understood but continued to make the calls.
