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

The Columbia Daily Herald reported city police arrested a 67-year-old man after he allegedly called emergency dispatchers at least nine times Saturday. 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 that if he cooperated, he would just receive a citation. But authorities said Brooks denied making calls and claimed he didn't have a telephone. :huh: Brooks was arrested and charged with making 911 calls in a non-emergency situation. He was released on bond.
