The case of the missing microwave
A guy living in a rooming house called 911 one night because the microwave that was usually in the kitchen wasn’t there, reports Reddit contributor and prosecutor Shaydu. The dispatcher explained to the guy this wasn’t an emergency.
The guy argued, “But I’m really hungry!” He wouldn’t hang up, at least until the police arrived and arrested him for improper 911 usage. Shaydu later brought the case to trial, and the jury issued a guilty verdict in 20 minutes flat.
