Cheeseburger in Prison: Burger 911 Calls Made

Gregory Jackson Sr

Gregory Jackson Sr

We’re taught when we’re kids to use 911 only in a real emergency.  That lesson doesn’t always stick, apparently.

FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig reports:

Audio clip:

New Castle, Indiana police getting 911 calls from a man who needed help – help satisfying a craving.

(911 Call) “Do you have an emergency?” // “A cheeseburger.” // “Have a good day.”

Gregory Jackson is the man bent on getting a burger, and he doesn’t call just once…

(911 call ringing)

…Or twice.

(911 Call) “We don’t take cheeseburger orders.”

On Jackson’s ninth try, he finally gets a little “customer service.”

(911 Call) “You give me some information, maybe we can try to help you out.”

Officers go to Jackson’s home, finding him intoxicated.  They also discover a warrant for failing to show up at a DUI hearing last week.  Jackson spending 120 days in jail for that.

He did get his meal: a prison peanut butter & jelly sandwich.  No fries with that.
