Man calls 911 to solve beer emergency

A 65-year-old man from Bridgeport, Conn. faces criminal charges after police say he called 911 to solve a beer emergency.

Raymond Roberge called the emergency number three times on Sunday. Authorities say when emergency personnel arrived at his home, Roberge offered them money to go to the store and buy him some beer.
He was charged with misusing the 911 system and was freed after posting a $500 bond.
Police say this isn't the first time Roberge has abused the system. Roberge has used the emergency system 79 times, never for an emergency. Once, he allegedly offered authorities $20 and some loose change to sit with him.
