Is Blake Shelton trying to kill Mary Linnie Myers ? Woman arrested for 911 calls claiming country star wants her dead
A Hawkins County woman, who was arrested on Sunday, May 17 for misusing 911 for a second time, had claimed that country music star Blake Shelton had been out to kill her. The woman found herself back in jail on Monday after she allegedly made another Blake Shelton-related 911 call. Myers was arrested again on Monday night at around 8.30 pm and charged with making 911 calls in a non-emergency situation, Kingsport Times reports.
48-year-old Mary Linnie Myers had shared with Deputy Hunter Newton on Monday that the country singer Blake Shelton was supposed to "come pick her up and take her somewhere." She had also told Deputy Hunter Newton that her bodyguard had "ordered her dead." Her new 911 calls were made at around 8 pm on Monday. On Sunday afternoon, her first arrest happened after calling 911 and asking for a helicopter claiming the country singer was after her.
She also said that country singer Dolly Parton was coming over that night and that she is dating singer Eric Church. Deputy Jessie Williams, who had responded to the woman's first 911 calls on Sunday afternoon, stated in his report that a bottle of vodka was found on the table of the camper where Myers lives. Her speech was slurry, she was unsteady, could not balance, and also reeked of alcohol. "I asked Mary for the reason she called 911, and she said that Blake Shelton was trying to kill her," Deputy Williams stated.
"Mary told me there was a man in the woods with a knife. Mary said the she and Eric Church are dating, and Dolly Parton was flying in to see her tonight," he continued. Williams added that he did not see anyone or anything around her that would cause an immediate danger to Myers. Myers was seen in the Hawkins County Court on Monday morning where her charge was dismissed by Judge Todd Ross. Post her second 911 call, Myers was being held in the Hawkins County Jail with no bond with her arraignment set for Wednesday morning.
While Myers seems to believe that Shelton is out to get her, veteran coach Shelton is back on top with his team member winning the latest season of the singing competition show, The Voice. Todd Tilghman beat all the other contestants and was crowned the winner of The Voice, Season 18. Team coach Shelton now has 7 wins under his belt.
