POST FALLS, Idaho – Police say a northern Idaho man called 911 a dozen times to report being overcharged at a bar and now faces a $1,000 fine and a year in jail.
Post Falls police Capt. Pat Knight says an officer gave Phillip Poissonnier of Post Falls a ride home after he was kicked out of Club Tequila just after 1 a.m. Monday.
Knight tells Spokane, Washington, television station KXLY (http://is.gd/k21YQR ) that Poissonnier then made 12 emergency calls, the first wanting officers to come back to discuss his bar tab.
The TV station reports that a bartender produced Poissonnier's receipts showing he was charged $30 for the 10 beers he ordered.
Police say he faces a misdemeanor citation over misusing 911.
Poissonnier couldn't be reached by The Associated Press on Tuesday.
