Man calls 911 after Burger King runs out of lemonade
Saturday, February 07, 2009
BOYNTON BEACH — A man was charged with misusing 911 today for a midnight complaint that a Boynton Beach Burger King had run out of lemonade, police say.
Jean Fortune, 66, dialed 911 and told dispatchers he was “unhappy with his order” at the Burger King at 1521 W. Boynton Beach Blvd., according to an arrest report.
When a Boynton Beach police officer arrived, the cashier told him she had informed Fortune at the drive-thru that the store no longer served lemonade. He became angry when he picked up his order at the window and threatened to call police.
The cashier told him to “Go ahead.”
The officer noted in his report that Fortune could not explain why he resorted to calling 911 for a “civil dilemma.”
He was issued a notice to appear in court.
