Drunk Iowa Woman Calls 911, Says She's Olivia Pope, Informs Police Cyrus Is Up to No Good

Illustration for article titled Drunk Iowa Woman Calls 911, Says Shes Olivia Pope, Informs Police Cyrus Is Up to No Good

A 20-year-old Iowa college student and real-life gladiator called 911 in the wee hours of Friday morning to report that a) she is Olivia Pope, b) she saw Cyrus Beene, a character on Scandal, outside a bar, and c) there is a bomb headed straight for the White House.


Don’t you just love those Shonda Rhimes plot twists?!

The police report, obtained by The Smoking Gun, did not display even basic knowledge of the iconic drama, saying: “Defendant called 911 claiming to be ‘Olivia Pope’ and reporting ‘cyrus beams outside of Sports Column.’” The officer reported that she “kept talking about ‘Olivia Pope’ and about a car with a bomb in it that was heading to the White House,” and “everything that defendant stated was nonsensical and rambling.”


She was arrested for public intoxication, and faces a second misdemeanor charge for misuse of the 911 system.

It’s pretty clear that the real Olivia Pope would never allow such a miscommunication. The real Olivia Pope would also never blow a .206 on a breathalyzer test—she only drinks by herself, to numb the pain—but there’s no word on whether the University of Iowa student got herself into this situation by consuming an entire bottle of red wine alone while watching a blank TV.
