A 36 year-old Jackson Township woman was arrested for calling 911 because her parents shut off her phone. The Canton Repository reports Seloni Khetarpal was arrested by Massillon police last night and charged with disrupting public services. Authorities say the woman repeatedly called the Regional Emergency Dispatch Center because her parents ended her cell phone service, for which they pay the bill, according to the paper. An officer made contact with her and told her to only call that number for an emergency. According to officials, several hours later she called for the same reason.
