Man Calls 911 Seven Times Over Spilled Beer

There are many inappropriate reasons that people call 911. But usually, they stop the first time police yell at them. But not Carlos Bueno Mir of West Palm Beach, Florida. The 49-year-old was arrested after calling the emergency line seven times over the span of four hours, police say. The first time, police took the call and arrived to find Bueno Mir, apparently intoxicated, complaining that his wife had "thrown out his beer," WPBF reports.

Police advised Bueno Mir that he didn't have an emergency and left, but he allegedly called back, again and again, refusing to say what his emergency was. At one point, he complained that a woman outside had broken two of his beers, reports NBC Miami. He now faces charges of misusing the 911 system. (More 911 call stories.)
