Seminole woman accused of calling 911 to report deputy, then attacking him

SEMINOLE — When a deputy didn't deliver the kind of help she wanted, officials said, a 63-year-old woman took matters into her own hands.

Dolores Capp Myers, 63, called 911 around 10 p.m. Tuesday to report her son for trying to enter their shared home, deputies said.

But when a responding deputy explained there was nothing he could do because of existing landlord-tenant laws, Myers became upset and called 911 again — this time to report the deputy, according to an arrest affidavit.

She accused Deputy William Wiltse of trespassing and told the emergency operator she wanted him arrested, officials said.

Wiltse said he then ordered Myers to hang up the phone. She didn't. Instead, she charged at him and attempted to punch him in the face, Wiltse said.

The deputy then brought her to the ground and handcuffed her. As Wiltse walked Myers toward his cruiser, she continued to resist, he said.

Myers, who was charged with battery of a law enforcement officer and making a false 911 call, was released from jail around 7 a.m. Wednesday after she posted $2,650 bail, according to jail records.
