A Tennessee man got a lot more than a penny for his thoughts after calling 911 to report he was overcharged for his beer.
Danny Smith, 51, bought a Heineken at a store in Memphis on Monday, but felt the clerk overcharged him by a penny, The Commercial Appeal reported.
The clerk refused to give him the 1 cent he felt he was owed, so Smith called 911 -- not once, but twice.
Then, police say, he called the non-emergency number to complain about police not helping him with his complaint.
Smith was later arrested on charges of using 911 to make non-emergency calls.
He was released from jail on a $250 bond.
