Lemonade shortage prompts 911 call

Feb. 8, 2009 at 3:23 PM

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla., Feb. 8 (UPI) -- A 66-year-old man is facing charges for calling 911 to complain that a Florida fast-food restaurant was out of lemonade, police say.

Boynton Beach police charged Jean Fortune with misusing emergency services for his alleged phone call Saturday in which he complained about that lack of his preferred beverage at a local Burger King, The Palm Beach Post reported Sunday.

An arrest report alleges Fortune became upset upon learning the fast-food restaurant was out of lemonade.

After a drive-through employee failed to respond to Fortune's threat of contacting the police, the upset diner called 911, the report alleges.

The Post said once a responding police officer heard both sides in the dispute, Fortune was issued a notice for a court appearance.
