A woman was arrested last week for calling 911 to complain about her Chinese food order.
Tracey McCloud, 44, picked up her food from Main Moon Chinese Restaurant in Alliance, Ohio, on Monday afternoon, but decided that the food was “not up to par” and asked for a refund.
Her request was refused and the enraged customer decided to call 911 from inside the restaurant, according to the authorities. (Scroll down for the 911 recording.)

Once she was connected, McCloud reported that she had bought some Chinese food from Main Moon, but “it’s not up to par to me”.
She told the operator that employees were refusing to refund her and added:
I asked to get my money back and they acting like they don’t understand me and they took my food.
The dispatcher asked for her name and said in amazement:
This is why you called 911?

McCloud responded, according to an audio recording of the 911 call, obtained by ABC 5:
What am I supposed to do? Jump over the thing and beat ’em up and get my money back?
The operator replied in the negative, before adding that McCloud should have called the regular police line, rather than the “life-threatening emergency line”. She then sent police to the scene.
McCloud was then arrested and has been charged with the misuse of 911, a misdemeanor.
