LISTEN: Woman Arrested Again For Misuse Of 911 System

Gabriella Bassetti Arrested Again For Misusing 911 System. She Wanted To Speak To The Manager.

Woman Arrested Again For Misuse Of 911 System - Gabriella Bassetti

Woman Arrested Again For Misuse Of 911 System – Gabriella Bassetti

BOCA RATON, FL – Boca Post ( — A Wellington woman has been arrested for misuse of the 911 system for the 2nd time in 3 weeks after she called 911 multiple times about an issue she was having with a local hotel.

Gabriella Bassetti, 19, of Sugar Pine Trail in Wellington, has been arrested again for misuse of the 911 system. Boca Post reported on Gabriella Bassetti’s first incident 3 weeks ago after she called 911 during a traffic stop to accuse deputies of being racist for arresting her husband for DUI.

This time, Bassetti called 911 to report a dispute she was having with Royal Inn, a hotel in Royal Palm Beach. Bassetti was upset because she claims she reserved a room but the inn would not honor the reservation she had made. So naturally, she called 911.

According to an arrest affidavit submitted by Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, deputies say that they arrived at Bassetti’s Wellington home at approximately 1 AM on 4/21/22. Deputies met with Bassetti after being dispatched to her home in response to her calling 911 two times that evening about the hotel dispute.

When deputies told Bassetti that her issue with the hotel was a civil matter, she then retreated back into her house and called 911 3 more times.

On the last call, Bassetti suggested that fraud was a life and death situation. The dispatchers told her several times that there are deputies outside and that she needed to speak to them. Bassetti repeatedly told the dispatchers that she didn’t want to speak to the deputies because they didn’t help her.

On many of the calls, Bassetti demanded to speak to the manager, many times.

According to the report, deputies say that Bassetti’s husband told her not to dial 911 and that there was no emergency. Bassetti’s husband told deputies that he and his lawyer have both told Bassetti not to call 911 unless it’s for an actual emergency.

Bassetti was arrested for misuse of the 911 system and later issued a notice to appear for the misdemeanor.

Listen to the actual 911 audio from the calls that got Bassetti arrested for misusing the 911 system:

We have compiled all of the 911 audio and transcribed them below:

1st 911 Call

Bassetti: Hi, so yeah, I just made a reservation at a hotel “Royal Inn”. I made it last night and they are not abiding by my reservation. Umm. And put $100 down and I’m not, apparently they are full tonight, the night that I booked. I don’t know how that makes any sense to you but they blocked my number they’re declining my calls. And I would like my money back, one way or another, you know? My $100 dollars.

Dispatcher: Wait. Wait. Wait. You’re calling 911 because they won’t answer your phone calls?

Bassetti: Yeah and ill hold until <inaudible> fraud? Is that not fraud?

Dispatcher: It’s a civil matter, ma’am. Call the office tomorrow. You can make a complaint with that business, OK?

Bassetti: No, because I don’t have any place to sleep tonight. You see, I am a dancer. And I need a place to sleep tonight. You know? And.. yeah, no.

Dispatcher: Maam, Maam, Royal Inn not answering your phone call is not a 911. Maam, you are abusing 911 at this moment.

Bassetti: No, it’s not because they are not answering my phone calls. Because I paid $100 down. Right? And they have my credit card information?

Dispatcher: Ok. And that’s what they call.. that is what they, that is what they call a civil matter ma’am. And, have you gone to the hotel?

Bassetti: Yeah

Dispatcher: Ok.. And what happened when you went?
