A Winter Haven man was arrested after calling 911 to complain about his food order.

  • Winter Haven police say John May called 911 because his Checkers order was wrong
  • Also said May accused the manager of insubordination

John May, 53, was charged with misuse of 911.

On Sunday at approximately 9:06 p.m., police say May called 911 to complain about the food he received from Checkers (940 Havendale Blvd.)

Police say May complained, not only that the food was incorrect, but that the manager closed the drive-thru window on him, which "is insubordination."

When officers arrived, May admitted that there was not an emergency, but he just wanted officers to have the manager correct his order. It should be noted that when officers arrived, more than half of May's food was already consumed.

May was booked into the Polk County Jail for one count of misuse of 911 and one count of trespass-fail to leave upon owner order.
