A Man Calls 911 When He's Overcharged One Cent for a Beer
Who says we should get rid of the PENNY? Some people will still do some INCREDIBLY FOOLISH things over one cent.
On Monday afternoon, 51-year-old Danny Smith of Memphis, Tennessee was buying himself some HEINEKEN. When the clerk gave him change, Danny believed he'd been shorted by ONE CENT.
The clerk refused to reopen the register to give him another penny. So Danny called 911 to report a ROBBERY.
When they told him not to use 911 for non-emergency calls and hung up, HE CALLED AGAIN.
That time, cops actually came out to the store . . . and arrested HIM, for misuse of 911. There's no word on whether he did end up getting his penny.
