LISTEN: Woman calls Tampa police over uncooked waffle

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

Tampa police released a 911 call on Tuesday of a woman who called the police over an uncooked waffle.

The call was made on Jan 30. 2013 from the Village Inn near Fowler Avenue. The woman angrily tells the dispatcher that one of her waffles was uncooked, and the server refused to take it off her bill, and threatened to call police. The caller also says the server accused her of drinking.

The dispatcher tells the caller that her situation is not a criminal matter, but says she will send an officer to help resolve the situation.

Another caller dialed 911 after tripping over a wire, and seemed surprised when the dispatcher said they didn't need to file a police report over the incident.

According to Tampa Police, 50% of 911 calls are not emergencies. TPD encourages people who need to call them for non-emergency reasons to dial (813) 231-6130.

No, he's all 'well I'll call the police, you been drinking alcohol', well come on bring me a breathalyzer and everything, I am ready.

Dispatcher: Okay...

Caller: I told him I would call the police for him. Come on! (bleep) come eat (bleep) come on, man!

    Melanie and Jeffrey Cornwell should have been getting a tax break for years on part of the homestead property in Dunedin they call their "little piece of Heaven." But due to a mistake at the Pinellas Property Appraiser's Office, they won't see any rebates for previous taxes, just a break on future tax bills.
