Buck Wolf’s Weird News Central: Top 911 Idiots

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It may seem like an emergency if all the booze in your home is hidden, but there’s no need to call 911.

Avid drinker Robert Edward Cook of Jacksonville, Florida, made such a frivolous call to 911, only to have police find that his wife and kids hid the bottles as a form of tough love.

This week, Buck Wolf of About.com’s Weird News Central dials in with a Top 10 list of this year’s dumbest 911 calls.

They include...

  • Michael Krause, who summoned an emergency response team to his home because he needed a last minute lift to a Lil’ Wayne concert.

  • Latreasa Goodman who called 911 after her local McDonald’s ran out of McNuggets and wouldn’t refund her money.

  • And lonely Martha Crooks, who told operators she was depressed and wanted to go to jail because she was bored. For abusing 911, Crooks got what she wanted.
