Georgia woman Tonya Ann Fowler, 45, was charged with misuse of 911 after she called on July 15 to complain about the quality of a mugshot she saw of herself in a “Bad & Busted” compilation of arrest photos. According to the police report, Fowler had also called that day to complain that “She needed a place to keep her bags,” because the residents of the home where she was staying would not allow her to keep them in the living room. Fowler was arrested, which winds up being sort of a mixed blessing: Though police did not resolve her storage problem, they did take a new photo of her, which she may be able to switch¬†with the one she doesn’t like.
