Allen Brooks - Jailed After Calling 911 For Beer Run

Columbia, Tennessee (The Weekly Vice) - Allen Troy Brooks, a 67-year-old Columbia man was jailed Saturday after he allegedly called 911 several times, asking for a ride to go buy some beer.

According to the Maury County Sheriff's Office, Brooks called 911 at least 9 times, hanging up on several of his calls.

During one of the 911 calls, Brooks asked the dispatcher to "take him to the store" so that he could get himself a beer. The dispatcher told Brooks that he called 911, and that she couldn't take him to the store.

When officers arrived at his residence, Brooks denied making the phone calls, claiming that he didn't have a phone. Investigators say the officers originally intended to just issue Brooks a citation, but since he was not cooperative, they took him into custody to keep 911 operators from having to deal with him instead of responding to real emergencies.

Brooks was booked into jail and charged with making 911 calls in a non-emergency situation. He was released after posting bond.
