Boy called 911 because sister hogged computer

A five-year-old boy in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada called  911  to complain because  his six-year-old sister was hogging the computer.

He threatened to call the cops if she would not let him use the PC, and when she wouldn't relinquish control, he made the call.  He told the 911 operator he needed help and hung up.

Officers arrived at the house, and found the parents home, and no emergency. A Mountie took the boy aside for a chat and established the groundrules for calling 911. The boy now knows to call only when there's a fire, when someone is hurt or when a stranger is trying to hurt you. "The lad also made it clear that 911 shouldn't be called when your sister won't let you on the computer," said RCMP Const. Steve Holmes.

Cops attacked while responding to 911 call

Police officers responding to a 911 hang-up call in Evansville, Indiana wound up in a fight. Rico Johnson was arrested on preliminary charges of battery on a police officer, disorderly conduct and resisting law enforcement.

Johnson screamed and cursed when police officers went to the residence at 1:45 a.m. and were allowed in. Johnson reportedly ignored repeated commands to stop yelling and to leave. After Johnson cursed police again, Officer Kevin Mason reached for Johnson's wrist, but Johnson shoved the officer. Mason attempted to push Johnson against a wall, but Johnson reportedly struck the officer in the face, and the two then traded punches. Johnson eventually was brought under control on the apartment floor by Mason and Officer Jeff Kingery. Mason suffered cuts to his hands and possibly a chipped tooth, while Johnson had a knot on his forehead, a bloody nose and split lip, and was jailed on a $1,000 bond.
