Phony 911 plea gets I-39 travelers arrested

NT Staff

District 17 state police sent in a news item today titled, “Be Careful What You Wish For.”

Linda May Richards. 55, of Hillsboro, Mo., and Brenda Regina Bowen, 52, of St. Louis,Mo., were waving a sign out of the passenger window of their vehicle that read “CALL 911.” Concerned motorists did exactly what they were asked to do.

A trooper stopped the vehicle on Interstate 39 northbound at milepost 55 near the Illinois River and was told by Richards and Bowen that they were just bored and wanted to have fun with people, according to a state police.

Both Richards and Bowen were charged with disorderly conduct, state police said. Richards and Bowen posted bond and were released.
