A displeased McDonald’s customer spent a night in jail after repeatedly calling 911 to report the restaurant had robbed him, Komonews.com reported.
Jeremy Martin, 23, was charged with improper use of the 911 service, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office in Oregon reported.
Martin allegedly called the 911 dispatcher and explained that he had paid $10 but only received a single burger and an order of fries, according to the Web site.
The police dispatcher told the man it was not a police matter and requested he try to resolve the matter with the manager of McDonald’s.
But the man identifying himself as Martin demanded that a police officer arrive at the restaurant, threatening to sue.
“This is a 911 emergency,” the man said, according to the Web site. “I got robbed for eight dollars.”
The dispatcher explained to the man that 911 should only be used in life and death situations and added that the man would be arrested if he continued to misuse the dispatch.
The man who identified himself as Martin was eventually arrested after continuing to call the dispatch.
Martin said he is upset with the way that McDonald’s handled his order.
"For me to end up going to jail over a $10 order, that's just ridiculous," he told Komononews.com.
