Non-Emergency 911
 
 
On September 13, Florida man Terry Lynn Kimbell was faced with a dilemma: he wanted a late-night Taco Bell fix, but Taco Bell was only serving through the drive-through at that hour. Kimbell was without a vehicle, so he decided to brave the drive-through on foot. When Taco Bell employees declined to serve him Tacos, the irate Kimbell called 911. He was arrested and charged with misusing 911. Below are two exerpts of the 911 call, acquired by Bay News 9.

911: Largo emergency.
Kimbell: It's not an emergency. However, can you -- can you put me through to dispatch? I'm at the Taco Bell, and I walked in, and I left my car on purpose, so I wouldn't drink and drive. I walked up, they wouldn't serve me. So, I'm at the Taco Bell at 137th and Walsingham and I just want some tacos. That's it.

911: What are the employees saying?
Kimbell: You can't walk up, you've got to drive up. You got a get a DUI to get a taco. I got the munchies and I walked a quarter mile from here. Are you going to help me out or do I have to get arrested to get home? You know what I'm saying?
911: Well, we're not going to take you home.
Kimbell: I want you to call the manager at the Taco Bell.
