GRANBURY, Texas (AP) -

Authorities in North Texas say a 48-year-old woman called 911 to have a deputy deliver cigarettes to her home.
    
Hood County sheriff's Lt. Kathy Jividen said the woman, a Granbury resident, called 911 on Feb. 11 asking for the cigarettes. Jividen said the woman instead received a visit from two deputies and was arrested.
    
She was charged with a misdemeanor count of abuse of 911. She was later released from the Hood County jail on a $1,000 bond.
    
Jividen said the caller was "very intoxicated" when she dialed 911.
    
Granbury is about 65 miles southwest of Dallas.
