Investigators claim that Keener, a Bradenton resident, used 911 to obtain transportation by ambulance to the different hospitals in the county. The ambulance service company answered her calls and brought her to the different hospitals over a period of 26 hours.

The arrest affidavit states that Keener sought to “obtain fraudulent prescription pain medication.” The reasons for calling 911 were not included in the court filings, nor how successful Keener was in obtaining any pain medication prescriptions.

Keener was arrested for misuse of the 911 system at St. Petersburg General Hospital at 4 a.m., the seventh hospital that Keener visited. She was also charged with obtaining controlled substances by fraud, which is a felony. She was jailed on $5150 bond. She is also facing a probation violation for a misdemeanor theft conviction a few weeks ago.
