Man arrested after calling 911 for 1-cent beer overcharge
It cost Danny Smith more than a penny to express his thoughts after buying a beer at a Memphis store.
The Commercial Appeal reported that police arrested Smith, 51, after he called 911 twice on Monday, then called a non-emergency number after being dissatisfied. His complaint: The clerk at the store over charged him by a penny.
The calls started just after 4 p.m. after Smith bought a 16-ounce Heineken.
