A five-year-old boy from Arizona decided he wanted a McDonald's Happy Meal and wasn't going to take no for an answer.
Five-year-old Charlie Skabelund wanted to actually call McDonald's but he hadn't really gotten the dialing of the phone thing down just yet and instead called 911.
When the dispatcher picked up, he said he needed a Happy Meal. So the operator decided that they should send out a police officer to do a welfare check and make sure everything was okay with the boy.
It turned out that Charlie was just fine. It seems that after he hung up with 911, they called back and his dad was a bit embarrassed and couldn't stop apologizing for the hassle.
They still sent a cop to check on him though and when the cop showed up, he didn't come empty-handed. The officer did bring Charlie a Happy Meal.
He stopped at McDonald's on his way. and there's a picture of him posing with Charlie in the driveway.
The cop eventually let him eat but not before he had a stern talk with Charlie about why you can't call 911 to order food.
This past Sunday 5 year old Charlie dialed 911 to order a #HappyMeal
Officer Valdez was dispatched to ensure the call didn't involve an actual emergency & he took time to help Charlie know when its appropriate to call 911. Of course he also brought Charlie his Happy Meal.
