It was an act that was allegedly intended to make a point. Now a North Texas city councilwoman is in hot water with police who say she abused the 911 emergency system.
Six-year-old Claire Sullivan’s grandmother was babysitting her at her Arlington apartment when a 20 minute, life-or-death drama began to unfold.

When you call 911 you expect crews to respond within minutes. But if you have an emergency in parts of south Fort Worth, it could take up to 15 minutes for first responders to get to you.

The Dallas Police Department says a new emergency call policy helped a woman being attacked Sunday.
