Man called 911 to make wife go to bed

A Florida man is in the away stretch of a 60-day jail sentence for misuse of 911 – after he called the emergency line because his wife would not go to bed.

Fifty-seven-year-old Doyle Hardwick of Wesley Chapel explained to the dispatcher that his wife would not stop sitting next to him and that he wanted her to go to bed so that he “look at Facebook peacefully”. It would seem that the situation was aggravated by his wife reneging on her promise to go to bed if he shared some of his beers with her. He did and she didn’t and Doyle thought that he could remedy the situation by calling the authorities.

Deputies that attended the scene on September 24, 2011 noted that the couple smelled of alcohol.
