A man and his girlfriend were house-sitting in New Mexico when the woman received a text message. The man saw the text message and became angry, accusing the woman of cheating on him. He then punched and kicked her before retrieving a gun and threatening to kill her. As he did so, however, he asked her, “Did you call the sheriff’s?”. Google Home was hooked up to a surround-sound speaker system and recognized the words as a command and called 911. The police were able to free the girlfriend and her children and arrest the man.
