A Florida woman is in hot water with authorities after she allegedly called 911 under the guise of reporting a medical emergency to obtain beer.

Police arrested Jennifer Sue Roberts, 57, of St. Petersburg on Friday when paramedics showed up at her residence and she simply claimed that she needed beer to quench her thirst, the Daily Mail reported.

The responding paramedics said Roberts appeared to be intoxicated when they arrived to help her.

The woman allegedly called once around noon and again at 4 p.m. After the second call, police arrested her and charged her with misusing the emergency system. She was released from jail the next day on her own recognizance.

Roberts, who also goes by Jennifer Sue Sunday, has a history of crying wolf to law enforcement.

Since February, she made 28 calls reporting false medical emergencies to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, WFLA reported.

The Tampa Bay Times reported that she had also been arrested in August 2014 and June 2016 for reporting fake emergencies in Pinellas County.
