Indiana man arrested for 911 cheeseburger emergency

Desperate for a cheeseburger, an Indiana man repeatedly called 911 demanding to place an order. He called 911 nine times in 90 minutes.

NEW CASTLE, Ind. – It must have been a cheeseburger emergency.

On Friday, Gregory Jackson, 52, of New Castle, was arrested for making repeated calls to 911 requesting a cheeseburger. Police said Jackson called 911, nine times in 90 minutes.

Not only did Jackson request a cheeseburger, he allegedly harassed the dispatcher after being told 911 was only to be called during emergencies. Just in case Jackson may have been starving or sick due to malnutrition, the 911 operator dispatched a police officer to check on him.

Jackson was committed to prison in lieu of bail. A hearing is set for Wednesday in Henry County Court. Police said Jackson's criminal record includes 13 public intoxication convictions, along with convictions for criminal recklessness and for drug-related charges.

Police said Jackson was arrested and later convicted on the intoxication charge after being found sleeping in the seat of a stranger's car, parked near his house. The incident occurred on Valentine's Day. At the time of his arrest, his BAC was almost three times above the legal limit.
