10-year-old trying to avoid bedtime calls 911

BROCKTON, Mass. – Police in Massachusetts say a 10-year-old boy called 911 because he didn’t want to go to bed.

Brockton police said the boy made the emergency call just after 8 p.m. Wednesday and told the dispatcher he was calling to report his mother because he did not want to go to bed.

The Enterprise (http://bit.ly/YoKmJZ) reports that according to the police log, an officer went to the boy’s home and explained to him when it’s appropriate – and when it’s not – to call 911.

No one was charged.
