A Florida man was arrested Sunday after police said he called 911 to complain about his order at Checkers drive-in being wrong.

John May, 53, was at a Winter Haven, Florida, Checkers when he called 911 to complain about the incorrect order, WTVT reported. During the call, May said he asked for the order to be corrected but was ignored by the manager. “I asked them to correct it," May told the 911 dispatcher, according to WTVT. "The manager on staff ... told me that she wouldn't correct (it) and (to) just leave."

May also told the dispatcher that the manager shut the window on him, which is “insubordination,” the WTVT story said.

May told the responding officers that the call was not an emergency, but he just wanted them to speak with the manager about correcting his order, police said. Police said May had already eaten half his meal when they arrived, a WFTS story said. 

May was arrested, and charged with misuse of 911 and trespassing.
