Police in Massachusetts say a 10-year-old boy called 911 because he didn't want to go to bed.
Brockton police say the Dan Davis made the emergency call just after 8 p.m. Wednesday and told the dispatcher he was calling to report his mother because he did not want to go to bed.
There was no emergency.
Dan Davis, 10, didn't want to go to bed so he called 911 on his mother
'He’s like, ‘I’m gonna call the cops on you,’' Rosario, 34, told reporters on behalf of her son.
She had just informed him it was time to go to his room for the night.
On the way he snagged the wall phone and dialed 911. Dan hung up, but not before he'd reached the police.
Following protocol, the police then called back to the home where Rosario had to explain that everyone was safe.
Dan won't face any charges, but mother Rosario is still ground him for two weeks
'Dan, would you like to talk to the police?' Rosario can be heard to say on the 911 recording. 'Because you can't be calling 911 when there is no emergency.'
'He doesn't want to come to the phone,' she told the police.
The Enterprise reports that an officer still went to the house and explained to Dan when it's appropriate – and when it's not – to call 911.
No one was charged with a crime, but for good measure Dan will be grounded for the next two weeks.
'They need to know that there’s boundaries and responsibilities they need to uphold, no matter how old they are,' Rosario said.
