    Was This Woman Really Arrested For Calling Her Ex-Boyfriend 77,639 in 1 Week?! Online Hoax Goes Viral Because People Want to Believe!

    Linda Murphy, Mugshot Albuquerque Police Department

    We all know girls have a reputation for sometimes acting a bit "crazy." And unfortunately, ladies, this story isn't going to help to an end to that stereotype (even if it may all be a hoax).

    The Twitterverse erupted in shock after a report surfaced via the World Daily News which claimed that a woman in New Mexico was arrested this morning after she called her ex-boyfriend 77,639 times in one week.

    The site claimed that Linda Murphy, who has a history of obsessive compulsive behavior, also sent 1,937 emails, 41,229 text messages, 217 sung messages and 647 letters in the same 7-day period.

    In theory, this story would give a whole new meaning to the term "stage five clinger." If there had been any truth to it.

    Inquistr did a little digging and discovered that the distraught woman in the mug shot is reportedly an Oklahoma City woman named Cierra Reed. According to News OK, she was arrested in 2010 after she reportedly crawled through a McDonald's drive-through window when she was asked to pay for her order.

    It's not 77,639 phone calls, but it probably wasn't her proudest moment.

    But back to the hoax.

    The bizarre report garnered a great deal of attention, presumably due to the specific details, including the claims that Murphy (Reed?) would use up to three phones a day to call her ex, whom she was said to have dated for just three weeks. She was also accused of taking large amounts of amphetamines and drinking countless energy drinks in order to remain awake to call her former flame.

    Considering there are only 10,080 minutes in one week, this story is virtually impossible (no matter how crazy a girl can get).

    But hey, for a minute, we bet you felt better about your drunk dialing days.
