(CBS) PALM BAY, Fla. - A Florida woman apparently wanted to express her gratitude for the bologna sandwiches she had during a recent jail stay. So she called 911 - six times - to try to thank the sheriff.

Instead, police arrested 51-year-old Christine Lee Brown for abusing the emergency line, and brought her back to jail.

CBS Tampa reports that police in Brevard County met Brown at her window Saturday as she was talking to a 911 operator. For each of the six calls, Brown kept 911 operators on the line by talking about having a bologna sandwich at the Brevard County Jail Complex.

The station reports that Brown is back at the jail, held on a $3,000 bond.

The menu probably hasn't changed.
