A 36-year-old Ohio woman who called 911 to complain that her parents had shut off her cellphone service is facing a felony charge, records show.
Seloni Khetarpal was arrested Thursday for disrupting public services after twice dialling the police emergency line and asking for cops to be dispatched to her family’s spacious Canton residence, which abuts the 18th hole at the Glenmoor Country Club.
According to a criminal complaint, Khetarpal called 911 demanding that cops come to her home since her parents had disconnected her cell service. An operator advised Khetarpal, seen at right, to “only call for police assistance for legitimate purposes.”
Despite the warning, a “belligerent” Khetarpal called 911 two hours later to again report her cell phone woes (which she thought should be of concern to law enforcement).
Khetarpal was subsequently arrested and booked into the Stark County jail, from which she was released on $2500 bond. Khetarpal, who is a licensed real estate salesperson, is scheduled for a February 27 preliminary hearing in Massillon Municipal Court.
The court filing does not reveal why Khetarpal’s parents–dad is a gastroenterologist, mom is a pediatric dentist–cut off their daughter.
