OLD BRIDGE, N.J. â€” 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 reported 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, said she awoke from a nap to find her daughter trying to shoo an officer out of the house. She said 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."
My daughter has this book and an the elf add every morning my grand daughters look and look to see where the elf has moved to0. It seems the elf moves every night to a new location. A lot of fun the elf even comes to out house when they are here and of course it moves every night
