Man Calls 911, Gets Arrested

Tyranny, I tell you! A man in Columbia, Tennessee called 911 with a genuine beermergency. But police, rather than helping him, threw him in jail!

“Hey, you want to take me to the store?” the man asked the dispatcher in a recording of the conversation.

After some conversation where the man revealed his motive for wanting a ride to the store – beer – the dispatcher set him straight.

“OK sir, I can’t take you to the store and get you a beer,” She said, and later added, “I can send you a ride over there, though.”

After confirming the man's name and address, she assured him she would send someone right over to speak with him. [...]

The man was taken into custody and charged with aggravated 911 calls in a nonemergency situation, a class A misdemeanor. He was jailed and released on $1,500 bond.

You can listen to an audio recording of the conversation at the link.
