Conway police arrested a 21-year-old Guy woman for communicating a false alarm after she allegedly left a note at a restaurant indicating she was being held against her will.
According to the incident report, Tesla Williams was at Buffalo Wild Wings Sunday with two male subjects when she left the note on the back of a receipt and hid it out of sight under condiments on the table.
The note, according to police, stated a female named Becky was being held against her will and asked that her mother be contacted at the provided telephone number.
The telephone number was actually Williams’ boyfriend’s number, she later told police.
Another server at the restaurant told police she recognized Williams as a former server at Buffalo Wild Wings, and that she now works at Gusano’s.
When officers made contact with Williams by phone, she advised she was O.K. and that she left the note as a prank “because the waitress didn’t know who she was.”
A supplement with the report states Williams was told to come to the police station so her welfare could be confirmed and to provide a statement.
When she admitted to leaving the note, she was taken into custody, the report states.
Williams told police she thought other servers would tell her server that the note was a joke, and officers told Williams that many officers were looking for her and concerned about her welfare, and that “her joke used valuable police resources.”
The store’s local manager told officers the company was upset about Williams causing such an alarm, and the store’s general manager was leaving Oklahoma City to come log into the Conway store’s camera.
The manager told police he would be willing to testify on any charges brought against Williams, the report states.
