An Oklahoma City woman is facing a felony charge after she allegedly called in a bomb threat to Oklahoma Gas & Electric. 

Her motive? She received a bill for $14.

"I remember flipping out, but I don't really remember what was said," OG&E customer Deidra Reed told Oklahoma City's News 9.

Reed is accused of calling OG&E and saying, "I am going to blow OG&E up 'cause y'all are charging me for electric I haven't used."

Investigators say the call was not recorded. However, the employee Reed spoke to is slated to testify against her in court.

"The detective actually told me he heard [the call in question], so I can't really argue with it if it's me," Reed said.

"I don't have a criminal record," Reed added. "I'm struggling to pay $40 a month for rent. How the hell am I [going] to buy some bomb equipment? I don't have know how to make a bomb."

Reed is reportedly still planning to protest the $14 bill, but has apologized to OG&E for her behavior, according to News 9.
