A woman in Johnson City, Tennessee is in jail after claiming that Blake Shelton tried to kill her. The woman, Mary Myers, was charged with misuse of 911 after calling authorities on Saturday (5/16) and saying Shelton was trying to kill her.

According to a report from the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called to Myers after she had asked for a helicopter. WJHL reports that when deputies arrived, they found Myers, 48, with severely slurred speech and unsteady feet. Deputies reported there was also a smell of alcohol coming from Myers.

Myers told deputies she had called 911 because Blake Shelton was trying to kill her, and there was a man in the woods with a knife. The report also says Myers told deputies that she and Eric Church were dating and Dolly Parton was flying in to see her that night.

Deputies report there was nobody around the camper or anything that would cause immediate danger to her, but an open bottle of vodka was on her table.

There was no comment on the matter from Blake Shelton.
