Idaho Man Calls 911 Repeatedly to Gripe About Bar Tab
Where most people would simply demand to speak to a manager, a Post Falls, Idaho man decided his bar tab was of emergency proportions.
Phillip Poissonnier was ejected from a northern Idaho Club Tequila shortly after 1 a.m. Monday (Mar. 30). He was given a ride home by a Post Falls PD officer.
Once home, Poissonnier decided that the $30 he had paid for ten beers -- a bargain by most reckonings -- was too much. He then proceeded to call 911 a dozen times in an attempt to get police to come back to his home and look into the tab.
A Club Tequila bartender produced receipts for the beers, proving Poissonnier was not overcharged at all.
It is illegal to use 911 on frivolities, so as to keep the lines free for real emergencies; Poissonnier faces charges of misusing 911, a misdemeanor which could warrant up to a $1,000 fine and a year behind bars.
