Man arrrested for calling 911 about a sandwich

Police in Jacksonville, Florida say Reginald Peterson needs to learn that 911 is not the appropriate phone number to call for complaints that Subway left the sauce off a sandwich.

Peterson dialed 911 twice so he could have his sub made correctly. The second call was to complain that police officers didn't arrive fast enough.

Subway workers told police Peterson became belligerent and yelled when they were fixing his order. They locked him out of the store after he left to call police.

When officers arrived, they tried to calm Peterson and explain the proper use of 911. Those efforts failed, and he was arrested on a charge of making false 911 calls. (info from The Miami Herald)
