Police: Woman calls 911 for a push around mall

PEABODY, Mass. — Police say a woman was arrested Monday night after she called 911 to request that officers push her around the mall in this Boston suburb.

Zemenay D. Auditore, 35, of Rockport, Mass., was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct.

Police responded to the Northshore Mall in Peabody, Mass., after an 8:19 p.m. 911 call from a woman "requesting PPD units push her around the mall so she can shop," according to the incident log.

Lt. Arthur Yeo said Auditore had complained of a leg injury and requested a wheelchair from mall security, who then pushed her to the Apple store and back to her car.

Once back at her car, though, she asked to be pushed back to the Apple store, a request security said they couldn’t oblige because they were too busy, Yeo said.

Auditore apparently called 911 shortly after that. Police arrived and spoke to her "about the proper use for 911 and the consequences of calling it again for frivolous issues," according to the log.

But Auditore contacted authorities again, this time "requesting an EMS unit for transport," police wrote.

Police wrote later: "Officer is now requesting a supervisor and backup for an out-of-control female."

Auditore was taken into custody without further incident.
