Police: 911 caller seeking ride for beer arrested

A dispatcher said at least once, the caller asked if someone could send him a ride so he could buy beer

The Associated Press

COLUMBIA, Tenn. — When you're out of beer and need a ride to get some, who you gonna' call?

Not 911.

The Columbia Daily Herald reported city police arrested a 67-year-old man after he allegedly called emergency dispatchers at least nine times. Most of the calls were hang-ups, but a dispatcher said at least once, the caller asked if someone could send him a ride so he could buy beer.

Police Officer Seneca Shield said he told Allen Troy Brooks if he cooperated, he would just receive a citation. But authorities say he denied making the calls, was arrested and charged with making 911 calls in a non-emergency situation. He was released on bond.

An online phone listing for Allen T. Brooks had a recording saying it was no longer in service.
