Audio Recording Of 911 Call Here
Aloha, Oregon (The Weekly Vice) -- Raibin 'Ray' Osman, a 20-year-old Oregon man spent Memorial Day in jail after calling 911 to complain when he discovered his McDonald's meal didn't include the orange juice box he claims to have ordered.
According to the Washington County Sheriff's Office, Osman called 911 to complain over an allegedly botched McDonald's drive thru order.
Osman told 911 dispatchers that he got home to discover the meal he ordered from McDonald's was missing a drink box he claims to have ordered. He went back to the store and insisted that his order was wrong, however when the store employees refused to replace the order, he reportedly became angry.
Unsatisfied, Osman called 911 to complain. An employee at the store also called 911 when Osman continued to block the drive thru, repeatedly knocked on the drive thru window and intimidated store employees.
When deputies arrived, Osman reportedly refused to listen when deputies explained that it was inappropriate to use 911 emergency services for food order disputes. Osman reportedly told deputies that he "had the right to call police."
"He said it was a freedom of speech issue," said Sgt. David Thompson of the Washington County Sheriff's Office. "He was not open to having any deputy educate him.
Osman was booked into the Washington County Jail on a charge of improper use of 911. He was released the next day.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
I wish I could say this was the first time some kid punk insisted he could say and do whatever he wanted because it was his 'freedom of speech' right to do so.
Well Mr. Osman - let me educate you how the system works. You do have the right to shoot your mouth off in certain instances where you aren't violating the law. But guess what. I have the right to put your "I'm a pain in the ass" mugshot up on the Internet, so everyone can puzzle about your remarkably poor shaving skills.
Isn't freedom of speech a wonderful thing? Next time do what everyone else on the planet does. check your order BEFORE you leave the friggen restaurant.
