(Newser) – If a guy has too much to drink and calls 911 to complain about his bar tab, it's worthy of the local paper. But if the guy calls police 12 times, he's destined for national exposure. Such is the case in Post Falls, Idaho, reports KXLY. Police say Phillip Poissonnier got kicked out of a local bar about 1am yesterday and received a courtesy ride home from a police officer. Over the next hour or so, police say he called 911 a dozen times to complain about being overcharged at the bar, at one point telling the dispatcher she was "just like his ex." The bar tab: $30 for 10 beers. The possible consequences for charges of misusing 911: a fine of up to $1,000 and a year in jail.
