Six-Year-Old Calls Police And Asks Them To Jail Her Mum Following Play Fight

Six-Year-Old Calls Police And Asks Them To Jail Her Mum Following Play Fight

A six-year-old called 999 and asked police to throw her mum in jail after the pair got embroiled in a play fight.

Vicky Pitchford from Bentilee, Staffordshire, UK, had begun tidying her bedroom after a fairly run of the mill tussle with her daughter Ruby, when she walked in and handed her the phone.

But the 29-year-old couldn't quite believe it when she discovered the police were waiting for her on the other end of the line after Ruby asked them to 'take mummy to jail'.

Reflecting on her near arrest, Vicky said: "We do a lot of play fighting together. As she was trying to get away, she was crawling across the floor, so I got her foot and dragged her towards me and that was that. I thought she was over it.

"When we were done I went upstairs to clean my bedroom and Ruby walked in and said the police were on the phone. I was like 'whatever' because I didn't believe her. She put the phone on loudspeaker and I heard a man say 'hello' so I took the phone off her and saw that she had actually dialled 999.

"I spoke to the male copper and he said 'your daughter told us to take you to mummy jail' because you grabbed her foot.

"I couldn't believe it when I heard the voice on the other end of the phone - and Ruby was running around the room laughing. The operator was laughing down the phone. We were hysterical and I was laughing for a long time."

Ruby is familiar with calling 999 because Vicky suffers from frequent panic attacks; however, she has been reminded that the number should be called in emergencies only.

Vicky said: "I have a lot of panic attacks so I have taught her to dial 999 because sometimes there are times when I can't breathe so she may have to call them but this time she took it to her own advantage.

"In a way I am proud that she has remembered how to dial the number, although it's a bit silly.

"If I ever need help she is there and able to get that help for me and that is why she has got her own phone as well.

"When we came off the phone to the police I had a word with her that she has got to take the number seriously because it is for emergencies only."
