Man Calls 911 Three Times For Being Overcharged One Penny

He wanted some hot cross buns to go with that beer!

"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 overcharged him by a penny.

The calls started just after 4 p.m. after Smith bought a 16-ounce Heineken.

The store clerk refused to hand over the penny Smith demanded, so he called 911. Police arrived and told Smith it was a civil matter.

After the third call to police in his quest for a penny, officers arrested Smith."
