A New Castle man's hunger for a cheeseburger landed him in jail.I admit it, when I saw that my first thought was that Mayor Bloomberg had finally seized total power and that orders of french fries would now be limited to a maximum bag capacity of 10 unsalted fries.
An Indiana man got the attention of local police after he tried to order a cheeseburger by calling 911 nine times.
According to WISHTV, 52-year-old Gregory Jackson Sr. has reportedly had past run-ins with police, but this may be the most bizarre. Jackson reportedly made the nine phone calls in just 90 minutes.
Eventually, New Castle, Ind., police showed up at Jackson’s home and arrested him. Finally, the dispatcher sent police to Jackson’s residence. Though, despite the series of strange calls, the dispatcher was reportedly concerned Jackson was calling, because he hadn’t eaten food in a long time."the dispatcher was reportedly concerned Jackson was calling, because he hadn’t eaten food in a long time."
Um sure, I'll buy that. She sent the cops out because Mr. Jackson was a dork who was potentially taking up a phone line that would be needed if there was a real emergency.
