In the town of Alliance, Ohio, a 44-year-old woman apparently became upset because the Chinese food she ordered inside the Main Moon Chinese Restaurant was not to her liking. So she called 911 to rectify the situation. Police showed up at the scene, not to help her with her order, but to arrest her on charges of 911 abuse, a misdemeanor.
She isn’t the first person to be arrested after discontent with their food order, and she won’t be the last. I suppose to some people, if you pay for something, and it’s not what you bargained for it can feel like stealing. Still, that doesn’t qualify as a 911-worth emergency.
