Woman, Upset Over Chinese Food, Calls 911 — Is Subsequently Arrested

''What am I supposed to do, jump over the thing and beat them up and get my money back?'

What's a gal to do when her egg drop soup is egg drop goop? When her wontons are all wrong? When her chow mei fun is no way fun? Why, call 911, obviously.

Cleveland, Ohio's Tracey F. McCloud, perhaps not understanding the concept of "emergency," rang up 911 when she was refused a refund on her Chinese food.

Dispatcher: "And this is why you called 911?"

McCloud: ''Um, what am I supposed to do, jump over the thing and beat them up and get my money back?'

Dispatcher: "No, you could've called the regular police line instead of the life-threatening emergency line."

If Tracey had jumped over the "thing" and beat them up and got her money back, it most likely would have had the same outcome as what happened next.

A police officer responded to McCloud's "emergency" by arresting the 44-year-old for misuse of 911.

On the call, McCloud claims she had called the regular police line but they then transferred her over to 911, so clearly Cleveland needs to step up it's Chinese food and grievance resolution games.
