Another NC whack job: 20 calls to 911 over a pizza

Why is today a NC nut day? First we had wingnuttery from Liddy Dole, then Walter Jones, the Koran-flushing pastor, and now just plain nuttery by a Charlotte woman that really needs the phone removed. Dorothy Densmore called 911 twenty times in a little more than a half-hour — because a pizza parlor wouldn’t deliver.

She told dispatchers Sunday that a local pizza shop refused to deliver a pie to her south Charlotte apartment, said Officer Mandy Giannini. She also complained that someone at the shop called her a “crazy old coot,” Giannini said.

Densmore wanted them arrested. Instead, police came to arrest her, and she resisted, Giannini said. It’s unusual for someone to face charges for nonemergency calls, Giannini said. But on Sunday, Densmore kept calling 911, even after she was told to stop, Giannini said.

When an officer arrived at her apartment, the 5-foot-tall, 98-pound woman attacked him, Giannini said. Densmore scratched him, kicked and bit his hand, she said.
