Woman Called 911 Over ‘Nasty’ Burger


ROCKWOOD, Tenn., (UPI) —  Police in Tennessee said a woman was arrested for abuse of the 911 system after twice calling the emergency number to complain about an eatery’s “nasty” food.

The criminal complaint filed March 29 in Roane County general Sessions Court said Donna Marie Nichols, 50, called 911 twice to report the food at a Hardee’s restaurant in Rockwood “is no good,” The Smoking Gun reported Thursday.

“I only took a small bite out of the burger and it’s nasty,” Nichols told the 911 operator.

She also told the operator she had previously called Hardee’s and the restaurant offered to refund her money.

Police responded to Nichols’ location and she was taken to the county jail, where she was released Monday on $1,500 bail.
