A Florida state senator called 911 claiming that a woman was threatening her at a restaurant. Sen. Daphne Campbell (D) can be heard on the recording describing the incident to the 911 operator. The person who was allegedly threatening her was a Miami Herald reporter who was asking her questions following a campaign event.

“Can you please send a police for me, please, right now,” she said, to the 911 operator.

“I have a lady who threatened me a lot,” Campbell claimed. “I’m not going to argue with no one. She threatened me right now. I need protection.”

The reporter was Sarah Blaskey who gave a rundown of the incident via Twitter:

The Miami Herald has more on the incident:

Campbell, a Democrat who is running for reelection this month in Senate District 38, called police at 1:24 p.m. after participating in a debate with her Democratic opponent, Jason Pizzo. A responding North Miami Beach officer who declined to give his name explained that police had been called by Campbell about threats made by a woman in a floral dress — a clear reference to the attire of Herald reporter Sarah Blaskey.

Police left without arresting anyone. But their appearance flustered attendees and the Social Citizens of Southeast Florida, which hosted the event in order to allow members to query the candidates on the issues. Afterward, president Dennis Stubbolo said he “was shocked.”

“I did not see anything go wrong. I was there,” he told the Miami Herald. “I don’t know where that came from.

But this isn’t the first time Campbell has called the police on a reporter. She also called the police on publisher Rich Robinson at a Miami Shores Village Council meeting back in May.

Campbell ultimately lost her race to attorney Jason Pizzo.
