Posted on 08/04/2013 12:28:11 PM PDT by SMGFan
A man in Georgia decided to call 9-1-1 after not receiving everything he ordered during a recent trip to his local McDonalds. His plan backfired, however, when he was the one who ended up behind bars. The customer tells WALB-TV that hed placed a sizable order at the Golden Arches 7 McDoubles, 1 McChicken, and 1 order of fries. I left out the store without checking it, but when I got to my truck and I got ready to leave I looked in my bag and come to find out I had six McDoubles, he recalls. When he went back into the eatery, he claims the employee he spoke to was trying to get an attitude with me, so didnt just threaten to call the cops, he actually dialed those three digits that are intended for us in emergency situations. I called the police and thinking that everything all cool by calling the police, he says. I didnt know I was misusing 9-1-1.

Bet they are in some way attached to the government for money.
Perceiving that someone else is “trying to get an attitude” is not a crime on their part.
All I want to know is who got the goodie bag as it beats jail food - the warden or the one behind bars?
Gyeah, but if dey got out dey caw or try to get up out dey seet, den you can whoop ass on dem.
I’ll do “stupid people in America” for $500, Alex.
“Hello. 911? Let me speak to Obama.”
And there is plenty of that going around these days, so it's not hard to believe. He might be more concerned about his hamburgers having spit on them.
Once you eat that 6th McDouble, does your stomach really know if it has another? On top of that he already had a McPigeon and some fries in his sack. This fatass needs to order less and maybe they won’t screw it up.
Not sure what that photo’s supposed to mean, but thanks, anyway.
Wearing a St. Tray Shroudie?
Two observations after going to the source and watching the video, one in the form of a self-answering question: 1) The guy looked like he could eat the seven McDoubles. 2) What color is a person likely to be if he thinks copping a ‘tude is a matter worthy of police intervention? I’m surprised he didn’t pin the clerk down and batter him with his fists.
It could be 7 is his lucky number and an attitude was trying to throw off his luck. And it worked out.
I’m concerned he didn’t order dessert and has the eating pattern out of order - he had dessert first so no need to order it unless he’s dieting. ;)
Anyone who would say that, has to be low information, Obama supporter, which is just the politically correct term for stupid. He needs to turn in his 3 Obama phones, before he embarrasses himself any further. On the other hand, he got arrested for being stupid. I don't know if being stupid, is grounds for arrest.
You are no fun at all.
:: Perceiving that someone else is trying to get an attitude is not a crime ::
Unless, of course, you use “the ‘N’ word” with your attitude. Then, it is a federal crime.
I didnt know I was misusing 9-1-1.
"Smart" phones have nothing to do with human intelligence.
97% chance that is an Obama supporter and low information voter if we go by statistics I guess.
If Obama had a mixed-up order?
Amish sure have taken a liking to McDonald’s.
We know who went in to the discussion with an attitude. I’ll bet he really tried to make a scene out of a simple error.

You almost need subtitles to understand this clueless Obamatron. I hope they fine him for the emergency service time wasted, too.
Apparently it is. See State of Fla v. Zimmerman
“You almost need subtitles to understand this clueless Obamatron.”
If I get someone with this particular “accent” when I’m calling a help line or similar, I ask to be transferred “to someone who speaks English”. They are not amused. (And I usually don’t get much help.)
Fraud is a crime. If they charged him for 7 and just gave him 6, there is evidence of a crime. I wouldn’t prosecute it because you probably couldn’t prove intent, but there’s enough there to start an investigation.
He probably used and 0bamaphone
And can’t read cursive either
Diggin’ on that ‘golden-arch-yellow’ jacket!!
I wish I could figure out how to post a picture.
Please waste my tax dollars on a screwed up fast food order.
While your at it I think you should also call in the FBI, CIA, NSA, DIA, ICE, HOMELAND SECURITY, SECRET SERVICE, and the MUPPETS.
No telling what EVIL CONSPIRECIES are being perpetrated at the local McDonalds.
Do I really need to say sarcasm?
If he put it on one of his EBT cards does that make it a Federal Crime and warrant a 9-11 call?
I always call 9-1-1 when my fast food order gets screwed up..we are on a first name basis /S
My very first thoughts while reading this is this guy has got to be a obama voter.
If you steal 10% on each order, you are talking big dollars at McD’s. Since they use the internet to communicate sales and ordering data across state lines, you might be able to put together a federal RICO action. But you won’t know until the Feds get in there and seize all of the corporate records.
Remind me to never do business with you.
And that’s where you are incorrect. This would not be a criminal prosecution. And even if it was (!), irrelevant to the bogus 911 call. A civil claim for negligence, maybe, but good luck with that . . . hope your lawyer charges a flat rate.
When my sons were young, it seemed like my youngest son always got shorted at drive thrus. We would invariably be missing all or part of his order. It was kind of funny, but he didn’t understand that they had no idea what part of the family’s order was his and that nobody was intentionally doing this to him.
One day I had both boys in my SUV and ordered a McDonalds meal for the three of us in handed the bag to my older son and told him to make sure his brother’s food was accounted for. He checked, and the lad’s fish sandwich was in there.
About a mile down the road I heard an indignant cry form my boy, “HEY! There’s no fish in my fish sandwich!”
There was only tarter sauce on the bun.
The feds can make pretty much anything they want into a criminal prosecution. I suppose you’ve never heard of wire fraud. They can stretch that one pretty far.
Six burgers instead of seven. Federal case. Wire fraud. Riiiiight.
