    Massachusetts police get an emergency call from a boy, but find out the child’s idea of a crime doesn’t quite match up with their own.

    FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig has the story:

    Audio clip:

    Police in Brockton, Massachusetts getting a 911 call from a 10-year-old boy, wanting to report his mother.  The boy hangs up, but dispatchers call back.

    (Dispatcher/Mother) “Hi, this is 911.  Somebody just called from there?” // “Yeah, it was my son, my 10-year-old son.”

    Forcing the woman to explain:

    (Mother) “I told him to go to bed and he doesn’t want to go to bed, so he’s like, ‘I’m gonna call the cops on you.’  I said, ‘Go ahead.'”

    An officer does respond to the house…

    (Dispatcher/Mother) “We have to send somebody out, anyway.” // “Okay, that’s fine.” // “Alright?”

    …Explaining to the boy when it’s appropriate to call 911, and when it’s not.  No charges were filed.
