COLUMBUS, Ind. (WISH) – A Columbus woman used the new “text to 911” service to call for help during a domestic disturbance early Thursday morning, according to 24-Hour News 8’s partners, The Columbus Republic.

According to the police, the victim was threatened with a knife so she texted for help and then texted her location to the Bartholomew County Emergency Operations Center.

When police arrived, they arrested William D. Booker, 43, in the 900 block of Chestnut St., on preliminary charges of intimidation with a deadly weapon and domestic battery.

The “text to 911” program has been available since March.
