A call to 911 is always used when someone needs an ambulance or police officer, but not when they need a woman.

But that's what authorities in Louisiana say happened on Saturday.

According to a news release from the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office, Kareem Collins called 911 on Saturday night and told dispatchers he “needed a woman.”

"We are guessing he wasn’t looking for one to come and run his criminal history, but that is what he got," the Sheriff's Office said.

The responding deputy discovered that Collins was a non-compliant convicted sex offender, meaning he didn't notify authorities when he moved from New Orleans to Slidell.

While police didn't bring him a woman he said he needed, they did bring him to the parish jail, where he was arrested on charges of failure to register for a change of address.
