Authorities say they’re pursuing a New Orleans 911 operator for deliberately hanging up on emergency callers without obtaining any information or relaying the incidents to other dispatchers.

Precious Stephens, 25, is facing a charge for malfeasance in office. She was relieved of her duties as a 911 operator, officials confirmed.

The Orleans Parish Communications District reported Stephens to police on Aug. 23 after investigating a random set of calls during her shifts on Aug. 20 and Aug. 21.

If convicted of malfeasance, defined by Louisana law as unlawfully performing a job in public service, Stephens could face up to five years in prison.
