Man Calls 911 Over Orange Juice at McDonald’s
ALOHA, OR – An Oregon man spent Memorial Day in jail after calling 911 to complain that a McDonald’s worker was rude and didn’t give him an orange juice he ordered. Sheriff’s Sgt. David Thompson said the man, 20, wouldn’t listen when deputies told him the emergency number isn’t to be used for straightening out fast-food orders.
A McDonald’s employee also called 911 during the incident, complaining that the man and the people with him were blocking the drive-thru lane and knocking on the restaurant windows.
The man was accused of improper use of 911. The Oregonian newspaper reported that the man was bailed out of the Washington County Jail on Tuesday and could not be reached for comment.
