    Houston investigators say former 911 operator Crenshanda Williams, pictured, allegedly hung up on 911 callers because "she did not want to talk to anyone."

    A former 911 operator from Houston is facing criminal charges after hanging up on callers because she "did not want to talk to anyone," NBC News reported.

    The woman, Crenshanda Williams, 43, is facing two misdemeanor charges of Interference with an Emergency Telephone Call after two incidents in March.

    According to investigators, Williams hung up on a man calling to report a robbery in progress on March 12. In another case, police said Williams hung up on a security guard who called to report reckless driving. She reportedly said just after the reckless driving call, "Ain't nobody got time for this."

    The Houston Emergency Center determined that she was involved in thousands of "short calls," or emergency calls lasting less than 20 seconds, charge documents said.
