It is no secret that Americans love their fast food but it came as a surprise to Indiana police when a man called 911 trying to order a cheeseburger, according to a weird news report on MSN on Feb. 27.
The man, Gregory Jackson, Sr. of New Castle repeatedly called 911 to request a cheeseburger Friday night. During a 90 minute period, the 52-year-old man called the dispatchers 9 times, each time asking about a cheeseburger.
Jackson was repeatedly told that "we don't take cheeseburger orders.” Finally, concerned that perhaps the man hadn’t eaten in a long time and needed help, the 911 dispatcher sent police to his apartment.
The Muncie Press reported Tuesday that Jackson was arrested on an active warrant for failing to appear in court for a hearing two days earlier. Police said that Jackson has an arrest record and has been convicted of public intoxication at least 13 times over the last decade. His last arrest was on Feb. 15.
He is being held in the Henry County Jail. Maybe he will get that cheeseburger now.
