    Man upset by McDonald's order calls 911 repeatedly

    CLACKAMAS, Ore. - A man upset at the way McDonald's employees handled his order was charged after allegedly calling 911 repeatedly on Friday to report the restaurant had robbed him, authorities said.
    Jeremy Lloyd Martin, 23, was charged with improper use of the 911 service, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office said. He spent a night in jail over the incident.
    According to a tape of the 911 calls released by Clackamas County 911, a man initially told a dispatcher that he was at the McDonald's near the intersection of Southeast Sunnyside Road and Southeast 82nd Avenue and needed help. The man said he had paid $10 in the drive-thru but only received a single burger and a fry before he was told to pull around.
    "Sir, this is not a police matter," the dispatcher told him. "You need to take it up with the manager of the McDonald's."
    But a person who identified himself as Martin called back demanding that dispatchers send a police officer to the scene and threatening to sue.
    "This is a 911 emergency," the person said. "I got robbed for eight dollars."
    "Sir, 911 is life-and-death only," the dispatcher said. "If you do continue calling 911 you will be arrested for misuse."
    "Well, arrest me at (expletive) 82nd and Sunnyside Road," the caller responded. "Please send a cop right now. I swear to God all my life..."
    Eventually an officer arrived after a person who identified himself as Martin had called 911 again.
    A McDonald's employee also called 911 to report that three men were screaming at her and trying to fight. The dispatcher told her to keep the doors locked and not to approach the drive-thru. Another witness told 911 the men were harassing employees.
    On Saturday, Martin told KATU he stood by his actions.
    "I was very upset that they tried to charge me for food I had already paid for," he said.
    Martin said he has worked on the other side of the drive-thru window as an assistant manager at a competing fast food restaurant and has called 911 over disputes involving customers but was never before arrested.
    "For me to end up going to jail over a $10 order, that's just ridiculous," he said.

    What is the deal with all of these idiots calling 911 about fast food orders? Or are we just hearing about them more often?

    People call about this all the time where I work ("I gave him a $20 and he's saying I only gave him a $10"). Bad thing is that our S.O.P. requires that an officer be dispatched, even when the dispatcher can figure out that it's purely a civil matter. We can only charge the caller criminally if they call again after being told by an officer on scene that it's not a police matter.

    It gets really old . . .
    Be kind, be courteous . . .

    and have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

    What is it about McDonalds that prompts 911 calls?

    Dallas had a woman call 911 a few months ago because she was dissatisfied with her Chicken McNuggets and wanted a full refund, but the cashier refused.

    Maybe it was Florida... I just found this 911 tape... Worth a listen. How that 911 operator keeps from laughing, I'll never know

    Yep. They also dial 911 because their kids got bad grades and they want the police to take them to jail to scare them , or someone in the house used the last of the jelly and left the empty jar in the refrigerator. "911 ,how may I make your pathetic life easier?"

    Not surprisingly, 82nd and Sunnyside isn't exactly where the height of "smart" hangs out (and 82nd is one of the busiest areas for our office). Not to mention, there's enough inbreeding and meth in Clackamas County, that it's quite possible that he DID think it was a life and death situation. How the guy that got this call kept it together is beyond me, and apparently didn't understand the fact that his "change that he didn't get" isn't robbery in the first place.

    I am just thrilled to death that he actually got arrested and spent a night in jal for misuse. That deputy deserves a beer!

    I hope he gave the correctional deputies more lip and attitude so he can serve even more time. I feel for those that had to actually put up with his crap, though. They deserve a raise.
