File 'Wife Threw Beer Away' Under Bad Reasons to Call 911


Drunk people, you keep calling 911 with these "emergencies" (exhibits A and B). I do not think that word means what you think it means.

Out in West Palm Beach, Fla., a man named Bueno Mir learned this the stupid way when he repeatedly called 911 because his wife had "thrown out his beer."


After receiving a 911 call, police arrived to Mir's house and informed the intoxicated man that spousal-alcohol-removal wasn't a valid use of the emergency system. According to ABC West Palm Beach, Mir then continued to dial 911, first refusing to provide operators with his emergency, and then complaining that a woman outside had "broken into" two of his beers.

For his seventh call spree, Mir now faces misdemeanor charges, punishable in Florida up to $1,000 or one year in prison. All that for a six pack of Bud.
