LARGO, Fla., Sept. 15 (UPI) -- Florida police said they arrested a man on a charge of misusing the 911 system when he called the emergency number because he was refused service at Taco Bell.

Largo police said Terry Kimball, 50, called 911 late Tuesday and told dispatchers employees at the Walsingham Road Taco Bell location were refusing to sell him tacos while he was walking through the drive-through lane, the St. Petersburg Times reported Thursday.

Kimball, who remained on the phone with the dispatcher until officers arrived, told police he did not have an emergency "except that he was not sold food from the restaurant," police said.
