Last night, an Alliance woman thought her Chinese dinner was so bad it was criminal.

After settling in for an early dinner, 44-year-old Tracey McCloud dialed 911 around 4:30 p.m. to report her emergency: She didn’t enjoy her meal.

According to Alliance Police, McCloud called complaining from inside Main Moon Chinese restaurant that her food was “not to her liking." No word yet on what dish she felt was illegally terrible. 

Calling for emergency assistance for anything less than an emergency is against the law. The grumpy gal was charged with misuse of 911, a fourth-degree misdemeanor. She’ll appear in court on Friday to defend herself.

Of course, reaching out to 911 for anything other than a legitimate emergency is discouraged by police, even if your sweet and sour chicken sucked.
