Lots of women want to be the character of Olivia Pope, played by Kerry Washington, from ABC’s hit show “Scandal,” but one drunken college woman took that aspiration way too far recently when she prank called 911 and pretended to be the famous TV character.

According to Fusion.net, after an episode of “Scandal” aired last month, 20-year-old University of Iowa student Kelsey Cousins called 911 from outside the Sports Column bar in Iowa City and claimed that she saw the character of Cyrus Beene outside of the bar.

When police arrived at the bar, Cousins reportedly was “talking about ‘Scandal’ and a car with a bomb heading toward the White House.”
