FORT PIERCE, Fla., March 3 (UPI) -- A Florida woman was charged with misuse of 911 after she called the emergency number to report McDonald's was out of McNuggets and refusing her a refund.

Police said Latreasa Goodman, 27, called 911 three times to report that she had paid for a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets and was refused a refund after being told the Fort Pierce restaurant was out of nuggets, TCPalm.com reported Tuesday.

Dispatchers told Goodman during each call that an offer was en route to the restaurant.

"Goodman maintained the attitude 'this is an emergency, my McNuggets are an emergency,'" a police report of the incident says.

The McDonald's cashier said Goodman became "irate" after she was offered a replacement meal of a McDouble and a small fries.

"This is an emergency, If I would have known they didn't have McNuggets, I wouldn't have given my money, and now she wants to give me a McDouble, but I don't want one," Goodman told police. "This is an emergency."

Goodman was given a notice to appear on a charge of misusing 911.
