Florida Man Charged After Calling 911 Over Lack of Vodka

A southwest Florida man was charged after authorities say he called 911 because his girlfriend wouldn't buy him vodka.

Jack Means is facing a misdemeanor charge of misusing 911 in an incident that happened Monday night, Collier County Sheriff's Office officials told NBC 2. It's unknown if he's hired an attorney.

Authorities say Means called to report that his neighbors were fighting and yelling.

"Uh sorry. It's not what I'd call a true emergency, but it's the same b-s," he told the dispatcher in the 911 call.

But when two deputies responded, there was no fight or yelling. But the deputies found Means, who was drunk and said he was angry because his girlfriend wouldn't buy him alcohol, the report said.
