FORT PIERCE, FL - A Florida woman has been charged with Misuse of 911 Communications after she called the emergency number over some Chicken McNuggets.
According to the police report, Latreasa Goodman, called 911 three times reporting that a McDonald's employee wasn't giving her a refund for her nuggets.
When police arrived, Goodman advised them that she had purchased a 10-piece Chicken McNugget, and after she had received her change, she was advised that McDonald's was out of nuggets. When she asked for a refund, she was told that all sales are final. The cashier offered her different menu items in exchange for the chicken nuggets.
In the police report, Goodman stated, "I called 911 because I couldn't get a refund, and I want my McNuggets."
When the officer told her this was not an emergency situation, Goodman is reported as saying, "This is an emergency. If I would have known they didn't have McNuggets, I wouldn't have given my money, and now she wants to give me a McDouble, but I don't want one. This is an emergency."
The cashier, Francesa Torres, told police that Goodman became irate, yelling that she didn't want the food they offered her in exchange for the chicken nuggets.
Florida law states that 911 must be used solely for emergency communications. Goodman told police, "this is an emergency, my McNuggets are an emergency."
