Today’s winner is Reginald Peterson. He gets the award for the following.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The sauce for a spicy Italian sandwich was apparently a must have for one Florida man. The man, Reginald Peterson, called 911 twice after a sandwich shop left off the sauce.
Peterson initially called the emergency number Thursday so that officers could have his subs made correctly, according to a police report. The second call was to complain that police officers weren’t arriving fast enough.
Subway workers told police that Peterson, 42, became belligerent and yelled when they were fixing his order. They locked him out of the store when he left to call police.
When officers arrived, they tried to calm Peterson and explain the proper use of 911. Those efforts failed, and he was arrested on a charge of making false 911 calls.
I like the part about Peterson calling 911 a second time to complain police wasn’t responding fast enough. Reginald Peterson stands a fair chance of not serving jail time for the above, but that doesn’t keep me from annointing him today’s Knucklehead of the Day.
