Alexa Calls Cops on Man Allegedly Beating His Girlfriend

By Joshua Rhett Miller July 10, 2017 | 11:27am | Updated

A New Mexico man was arrested for allegedly beating his girlfriend and threatening to kill her — after Amazon’s Alexa called police, authorities said.

Eduardo Barros, 28, became angered with his unidentified girlfriend while house-sitting in Tijeras, about 15 miles east of Albuquerque, and the dispute suddenly turned physical on July 2, authorities said.

During the assault, Barros waved a gun and threatened to kill the woman before he allegedly asked: “Did you call the sheriffs?”

The question was inadvertently picked up by the smart speaker and the voice-powered virtual assistant recognized the phrase as a command — prompting it to call 911, Bernallillo County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Felicia Romero confirmed to The Post on Monday.

It’s unclear whether the speaker was connected to an Amazon Echo or Echo Dot device, but the Alexa virtual assistant was connected to a landline in the home, Romero said.

The violent ordeal unfolded after Barros allegedly got upset over a text message the woman received and accused her of cheating on him, KRQE reported.

1. If you have one of those in your house you have no privacy.

And I would say you are a fool

You can not have freedom without privacy

2. Every device that has a microphone is suspect even if you think you have it turned off.

I have 3 but when I decide to beat the hell outta the ole lady, I lure said into the woodshed.

She's catching on to that though but damn is the sex good!!!
