Drunk called 911 for ride to detox, and opened a beer in cop car

A man called 911 in Tampa, Florida several times Sunday night to say he was drunk and needed a ride to an alcohol detoxification center. An operator said police would come to the man and that he should stop calling 911.

An officer drove to the specified address and the caller got into the car for the ride to detox. During the trip, the man opened a beer in the back seat of the police car.

Police charged James Ayers Jr. with misuse of the wireless 911 system. He also was ticketed for possession of an open alcohol container. His bail was set at $500. (info from Tampa Bay Online)
