Isabelle Calls 911

After accidentally touching her Elf, Isabelle had a complete Christmas meltdown. While trying to call her father (her mother was taking a nap in the next room) she accidentally reached the authorities. She told the police, “Don’t come to my house! Don’t!” Of course, as they’re legally bound to do when children call, the police immediately dispatched to the house, and Isabelle’s mother Lynanne LaPeruta awoke to her daughter trying to shoo the cops away before her mother saw. “She was hysterical crying, she was panicking,” said Lynanne.

Fortunately the police were completely understanding of the child’s Elf freak out. “To her, it was an emergency when she touched the elf, and she’s going to ruin Christmas, so that was her emergency,” said Old Bridge Police Lt. Joseph Mandola. “In her mind, she did right, and it was fine with us.”

Isabelle said about Santa later: “He knows I’m not going to do that again.”
