Woman calls 911 about wrong food order

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC/WMBF) - When a woman decided to call 911 after receiving a wrong food order, police are now reminding the public that it is a misdemeanor to call 911 unless it is an emergency.

Savannah-Chatham Metro Police released the 911 call Monday and stated the matter was civil, not criminal. The entire audio of the phone call is attached.

Police added officers were eventually dispatched to the area because the caller was getting disorderly. While she was not arrested, police said she could have faced 911 abuse charges.

In 2010 SCMPD 911 Dispatch Center received 248,774 911 calls and 165,920 administrative calls, according to police. 

They dispatch for the Savannah-Chatham Metro Police, Savannah Fire and EMS, Garden City PD and Fire, Pooler PD and Fire, Thunderbolt PD and Fire, Bloomingdale PD and Fire, Port Wentworth PD and Fire and Southside EMS.

Additionally, the Savannah-Chatham Metro Police want to remind the public that the non-emergency police number is 912-652-6500.
