Child playing with phone dials 911; mother arrested on outstanding

NORTH BAY, Ont. (CP) -- A North Bay, Ont. woman is in custody on
outstanding arrest warrants after her six-year-old child accidentally
summoned police. Police say the child was playing with the telephone
and dialed 911 on Monday while the woman was asleep.

After arriving at the home and determining the 911 call was a false
alarm, officers ran a computer check on the mother. They discovered
she was wanted on outstanding arrest warrants for failing to appear in
court and for possession of stolen property. The woman remains in
custody waiting for a bail hearing. No names have being
released. (CKAT)
