A New York woman found herself behind bars after she called 911 and asked the operator for advice on how to kill her boyfriend, according to WIVB.

Zelda L. Cotton, 54, of Tonawanda, was arrested Saturday evening after she had the not-so-bright idea to call the police on herself.

The woman told authorities that she hit her 76-year-old boyfriend five times with a VCR tape. Police said she was also swinging a leaf blower battery at him in a "threatening manner." She was reportedly intoxicated at the time.

Cotton was charged with endangering the welfare of an elderly person and criminal possession of a weapon. Her bail was set at $5,000.
