A Chicago woman may have broken a record with the number of calls she allegedly made to her ex-boyfriend Aug. 8.
Gabrielle J. Bridgemon, 24, of the 10100 block of Lafayette Avenue in Chicago, was arrested and charged with criminal damage to property and harassment after her ex-boyfriend told police she was causing a disturbance at his home.
The man told police he received several calls from Bridgemon before, telling her he did not want to talk to her. She then called her ex 83 times between 12:46 a.m. and 2:47 a.m., according to the report. To cap off the two-hour call-fest, Bridgemon sent her ex a text, stating, "For yo best interest u beta pick up yo (profanity) phone," according to the report.
About 30 minutes later Bridgemon showed up at the man's residence and, after her ex did not answer, kicked the door enough times to cause damage, police said.
