A South Georgia man spent the night in jail after calling police on a McDonald's employee who failed to give him the right amount of burgers he ordered. He got arrested for abusing the emergency communications system.

"I went in to order seven McDoubles and one McChicken, and one fry," Riggins said, according to WALB news. He left the car to his vehicle, he said in the 911 call, and when he returned to pick up his order, he noticed something was missing.

Riggins says he took the bag back inside and talked to an employee hoping to get his missing hamburger, but things didn't turn out so well.

According to the report, Riggins says he tried asking an employee to correct the order, which led to an argument. Riggins called police on the McDonald's employee and was taken to the Dougherty County jail for abusing the emergency communication system.

"I called the police and thinking that everything all cool by calling the police. I didn't know I was misusing 911. I never thought that," says Riggins.

Riggins spent the night in jail and got bonded out today. He's upset because he says he never got a chance to explain his side of things to police.

"I want justice, I want to be treated like a person with respect and any other person with respect, but I never knew that I was misusing 911," said Riggins.
