Yahoo – An Indiana man got the attention of local police after he tried to order a cheeseburger by calling 911 nine times.
Dispatcher: Do you have an emergency sir, because you dialed 911.
Jackson: I dialed 911.
Dispatcher: Yeah you dialed 911. …
Dispatcher: OK, so why did you call 911 for, what do you need. Do you have an emergency?
Jackson: A cheeseburger.
Dispatcher: Have a good day.
Jackson then called back into the emergency phone line.
Dispatcher: 911, Your emergency.
Jackson: Yes, I just spoke with you. You hung up on me.
Dispatcher: Well I asked if you had an emergency. You said no, you needed a cheeseburger. So we don’t take cheeseburger orders.
And still, Jackson calls back demanding a cheeseburger from the dispatcher.
Dispatcher: You know if you give me some information maybe we can try and help you out.
And finally, the dispatcher was on the phone with Jackson when the authorities arrived on the scene.
Dispatcher: You hear them knocking?
The police apparently did not arrive with cheeseburgers in hand. But they also have yet to charge Jackson over the series of 911 calls. Instead, they arrested him on a separate outstanding warrant for failing to show up to an appointed court date regarding a separate charge.
Ever crave food so bad you’ll practically do anything to get it? Well it looks like Gregory Jackson Sr. literally did that. When you want a cheeseburger, you get yourself a cheeseburger. Do you call 911 for it? Probably not. Especially when you have outstanding warrants out for your arrest.
I’d put money on it that Greg here was watching Diners, Drive-Ins, or Dines or something similar. Anytime you watch one of those shows, it is guaranteed you’ll begin to have cravings for food like a pregnant woman. I’m still waiting for smell-o-vision to be invented. How the fuck is that not a thing yet? Absolutely mind boggling.
