Monona woman accused of making multiple false 911 calls

MONONA (WKOW) — Police have arrested a 60-year-old Monona woman for making multiple false 911 calls over the past four days.

Ginger Scarver, 60, was transported to the Dane County Jail on a parole hold and faces multiple charges of making false 911 calls.

Dispatchers received the first call about 4:30 p.m. Saturday from a woman who reported a shooting on Femrite Drive in Monona, according to a news release from the Monona Police Department.

Monona police, fire and EMS responded with additional mutual aid from the McFarland Police, the Town of Madison Police and deputies from the Dane County Sheriff’s Office.

The call turned out to be unfounded.

Three more similar calls were received on Sunday at 4:39 p.m., Monday at 5:21 p.m., and Tuesday at 11:11 a.m.

Using advanced digital forensics, the calls were tracked to Scarver’s cell phone, according to police.

Under Wisconsin law, knowing making a false 911 call is a Misdemeanor Offense with fines between $100 and $600 or up to 90 days in jail. Each subsequent offense within four years is considered a Class H felony.
