New Jersey girl calls 911 after touching Elf on the Shelf

Posted: Updated:

    
OLD BRIDGE, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey girl called 911 after she touched her Elf on the Shelf.
    
Police say 7-year-old Isabelle LaPeruta of Old Bridge was worried because, according to the popular children's book, the magic of Christmas goes away if the elf is touched.
    
WNBC-TV reports the girl told the 911 operator not to come to her house because she had meant to call her dad.
    
However, police are required to check 911 calls and an officer found the child in tears.
    
Her mother, Lynanne, says she awoke from a nap to find her daughter trying to shoo an officer out of the house. She says the girl panicked after the elf fell on the floor when she threw a ball.
    
The officer radioed headquarters: "Isabella apologized. She touched the Elf on a Shelf. She won't call 911 again."

    Daytime highs for the interior valleys are backing off from triple digits on Monday. Temperatures for California Valley and Shandon will get close to 100 degrees on Monday, but right now daytime highs will range from the upper 80s to upper 90s. High pressure over the area is moving to the east, which is allowing for those interior valleys to cool down this week. However, with extremely dry live and dead fuel paired with gusty onshore winds, fire weather danger remains to be of concern...
