ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla., Aug. 3 (UPI) -- Police in Florida say a man who called 911 to ask for a ride to the liquor store wound up arrested for misuse of 911 and possession of marijuana.

The St. Augustine Police Department said George McMurrian, 57, called 911 twice Saturday from his room at the Budget Inn and asked for a ride to the liquor store, First Coast News reported Tuesday.

Officers visited McMurrian's room after the second call and told him he would be arrested if he continued to call 911 for non-emergencies.
