After a Florida man called 9-1-1, police arrived on the scene to find that the reason for his calls was that his wife had “thrown out his beer,” reports WPBF.com.
According the arrest report, the man appeared intoxicated (not that we haven’t heard of perfectly sober people being just as ninnymugged as drunk people) and police informed him that the loss of his booze wasn’t a reason to call 9-1-1.
That didn’t appear to sway him whatsoever, as he reportedly called 9-1-1 again and was uncooperative with the operator, allegedly refusing to say what his emergency was. He called back again and started yelling that a woman outside had broken into two of his beers.
Where I come from, we call that “cracking into a cold one.”
When he’d called 9-1-1 seven times over four hours, police arrested him and charged the man with misuse of the 9-1-1 emergency system for making a false alarm or complaint or reporting false information.
