Those calls, of course, made Donna Marie Nichols, 50, the latest restaurant patron to get arrested for “Abuse of 911 system,” according to a criminal complaint filed last Thursday in Roane County’s General Sessions Court.
After Nichols made two 911 calls, a cop responded to her location, and was told that she “had purchased a meal from the Hardees in Rockwood and that the hamburger tasted funny.” Nichols, pictured in the above mug shot, added that before she contacted cops, she called Hardee’s, “and that they told her to return and they would refund her money.”
In one of her 911 calls (listen below), Nichols told a police operator that the Hardee’s food “is no good” and that, “I only took a small bite out of the burger and it’s nasty.”
Nichols was subsequently busted and booked into the county jail, where bail was set at $1500. She was released from custody yesterday evening.
Previously, customers have been popped for calling 911 to register dismay about Burger King lemonade, McDonald's McNuggets, and pizza.
