(CBS/AP) ALBANY, Ga. - Authorities in south Georgia say a woman has been arrested for repeatedly calling paramedics, when all she needed was a ride.

Police say 27-year-old Ashley Nicole Jones was arrested for calling an ambulance for a lift Monday and has done so at least 15 times since January.

ABC affiliate WALB-TV reports the woman is charged with requesting EMS services when not needed.

Authorities say the woman has made 10 calls for an ambulance in May and has a history of being taken to an emergency room only to walk away without actually seeing a doctor.
