Can't call 911 over beer

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Running out of beer may be a crisis -- but it's no emergency.

Authorities in Bridgeport, Connecticut, charge 65-year-old Raymond Roberge called 911 three times Sunday.

Officials say when first responders arrived, Roberge offered them money to buy him some beer.

He's been charged with misusing the 911 system and freed on $500 bond.

Police tell the Connecticut Post since the beginning of this year, Roberge has called 911 nearly 80 times.

But never for an emergency.
