(Scroll down for video) A woman was arrested on a charge of misusing the 911 telephone system after allegedly calling police to thank them for the bologna sandwiches she was given in prison, according to police in Florida.

Palm Bay police said that they have arrested 51-year-old Christine Lee Brown, after being accused of calling 911 six times to talk about the bologna sandwiches she was given while she was doing a stint in prison.

In court, Brown pleaded not guilty to a charge of misuse of 911 communications. She was booked into the Brevard County Jail Complex, and her bail has been set at $3,000.

According to the criminal complaint, police went to the home of Brown in the 2500 block of Chatham Road, after she called 911.

She spoke with the responding officers while she was still on the phone with a 911 dispatcher.

The dispatcher repeatedly asked the woman if she had an emergency, but Brown kept talking about having bologna sandwiches in prison.

She also thanked police for the food.

She was warned not to call 911 unless she had an emergency, but Brown called five more times to speak about the bologna sandwiches before she was arrested.
