LOVELY, Ky. — A Martin County woman told police that she really only wanted a ride to her mother’s house when she reported that she had been poisoned by gas.

She got a ride to jail, instead.

Around 10:30 p.m. Sunday, a state trooper responded to the home of Amanda Mills, 37, of Lovely, after she called 911 to report that she had been “gas poisoned.” But when the trooper arrived, she said she was fine, didn’t need medical attention, but did need a ride to her mother’s house.

When the trooper asked if that was the only reason she called 911, she reportedly said yes.

Mills was arrested and charged with falsely reporting an incident.
