A TV reporter was doing a Facebook Live broadcast alongside a road in suburban Pittsburgh when she herself became the story after someone called 911 reporting a 'crazy lady' talking to herself.

KDKA-TV’s Meghan Schiller was using her cellphone to report live on Thursday from Route 30 that was closed by a landslide.

About five minutes into the video, a North Versailles police officer pulled over alongside Schiller's car.

'You realize I got called for a crazy person talking to herself,' he told her through the car window, with the Facebook Live video still rolling.

Schiller appeared surprised, then broke into a smile and reassured her viewers that the officer was 'kidding.' Turns out, he was not.

'I would believe it, though, if someone called and said that,' Schiller tells the cop with a smile.

'They did,' he tells the reporter. 'That's why I'm here.'

'Oh, wait, you're not kidding?' a stunned-looking Schiller says.

Schiller and the officer laughed the incident off and he left after clearing up the misunderstanding.
