Boy Calls 911 To Protest Bedtime

PMBROCKTON, Mass., (UPI) — A 10-year-old Massachusetts boy got a stern lecture from police after calling 911 because he didn’t like his mother’s order for an 8 p.m. bedtime.

Dan Davis of Brockton was upset at having to go to bed at his normal time despite not having school the next morning, his mother Shamayne Rosario, 34, told the New York Daily News.

When the boy threatened to call the police, his mother responded by saying “Go ahead!” and Dan showed he wasn’t bluffing by dialing 911.

Though he hung up without saying a word, dispatchers called back to check on the situation Wednesday evening. Rosario explained what had happened but under police protocol, a patrol unit was dispatched to confirm she wasn’t being forced to lie over the phone.

When officers arrived and found nothing amiss, Rosario asked officers to speak to her son to make it a “learning experience.”

After a stern talking-to about what can happen when calling 911 without an emergency, the 10-year-old was sent to bed.

Though he didn’t face any legal repercussions, the boy didn’t get off scot-free, either. Rosario said her son is grounded for two weeks after the stunt.
