Pizza late arriving, woman calls 9-1-1

Starvation can be a life or death matter, but police in eastern Ontario say a woman’s recent complaint about the wait time for her pizza order doesn’t quite qualify.

Provincial police say they were called to a restaurant near Leeds, shortly before 10 p.m. on Monday.

There they found what they describe as a “hangry” patron waiting to complain about the restaurant.

Constable Sandra Barr says a 32-year-old woman and her 10-year-old son called police because their pizza order had not been prepared on time.

Barr says police educated the woman on the appropriate use of 911 and would like to remind Ontario residents that the number should be used only when a crime is in progress or during a life-threatening or imminently dangerous situation.
