Cops in Germany were called to investigate a murder, only to find that the woman who called them simply wanted somebody to remove a car that was blocking her garage.

The woman told police that her husband had been killed, prompting first responders to rush to the scene.

"The woman thought, if she calls in a murder the police will get there faster,'' Upper Bavaria police spokesman Stefan Sonntag said.

They got there quickly alright, but a speedy investigation led to charges of misusing the emergency number.

Cops say the woman was drunk when they arrived, and tried to escape before her keys were taken away.
