If the allegations are proven, Hayley Oates, 25, have succeeded in combining virtually every bad trait into one dysfunctional personality. Oates allegedly wanted to drive home drunk but was sober enough to worry about a DUI stop. While most people would opt to take a cab or order coffee, Oates decided to call 911 to report an assault in another location to draw officers away from her route home. She then added stupidity to dishonesty and dipsomania by taunting the police on social media with a message “lmao.. 2 mins later the cop peals out.. silly piggies tricks r for u.” No, dear Oates, tricks are for you . . . it appears that police read social media.
Oates made her call in Wayne, New Jersey at 3:15 am from the Grasshopper Bar & Grill where she and a companion waited to drive home. She reported an assault of a woman in the parking lot of Mothers Ale House some distance away. She got away with it as police rushed to the scene only to find it was a hoax. It was later that the police saw the taunt for “silly piggies”.
This is a remarkably odious crime since officers and even pedestrians have been killed as police rush to a scene to stop a crime. It also removes officers from areas where real crimes are occurring.
