CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Dorothy Densmore, 81, was arrested Sunday afternoon after police said she called 911 dispatchers 20 times in 38 minutes.
Police said the elderly woman called 911 to complain about a pizza delivery.

She told dispatchers that a local pizza shop refused to deliver a pie to her Charlotte apartment and that someone at the shop called her a "crazy old coot."

Police spokeswoman Mandy Giannini says when an officer arrived at her apartment, the five-foot-tall, 98-pound woman attacked him.

Densmore now faces three misdemeanor charges.

Court records show it's the second time she's been charged with misusing the emergency system.

Densmore was in custody in the Mecklenburg County jail on a $2,000 secured bond. She was scheduled to appear in court today.
