Anti-Police Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty, had an all out meltdown and even called 911 after her Lyft driver cancelled her ride.

According to Frost as reported by Fox News, Hardesty “became irate when he refused to roll the windows up.” After the situation began to get tense, Frost decided to cancel the ride and pull into a gas station.

At this point, Hardesty began having a meltdown and refused to get out of the car because “it was cold and she was a woman and alone.”

The anti-police city commissioner then decided to call the police because she was afraid of being alone in the dark.

“I am not going to allow him to leave me on the side of the road. I paid for a ride and he says he canceled it, so I’m just going to sit here until he sends me another ride,” Hardesty said, claiming that she called the police because Frost allegedly threatened to call them himself if she didn’t get out of the car.

“Technically it’s his property,” the dispatcher noted. “And you have a civil agreement and there’s no crime involved.”

The dispatcher the correctly explained to Hardesty that it is her obligation, not Frost’s, to get another ride.

According to the audio of the situation, Frost then called 911 himself after Hardesty refused to get out of the car.

“I’ve got a customer that I canceled the ride,” Frost said. “I’m a ride share driver and I canceled the ride, and I’ve taken her off the freeway to this filling station so that she can order another ride.”

“I canceled the ride so she’s no longer involved or engaged with me. She’s refusing to get out of my car,” Frost said.

Hardesty later took another Lyft home and the dispute ended, per Oregon Live.

Hardesty told the Portland Tribune that calling 911 was scary, but that she had to call before Frost did.

“I knew that having him call the police would put me in danger,” she said. “And so that’s why I proactively called 911.”

“I don’t call 911 lightly, but I certainly am not going to do anything that would put my personal safety at risk,” she said, per the report.

Despite using the 911 emergency services – which dispatched officers to the scene –Hardesty has spent recent months calling for a budget cut that would “reallocated $18 million from the Portland Police Bureau to reinvest in community, COVID-19 relief, and police alternatives.”

The Portland City Council did not pass the budget amendment and Hardesty said leaders need to “move past the fear and stretch ourselves to take the action that is demanded,” according to a statement from Nov. 5.

“We came into this budget with the same goal of investing in our communities and reducing police by providing mutual aid because if Portlanders can’t depend on Portland to keep them safe and supported, who can they count on?” she asked.
