LAKEWOOD -- A man becomes “royally” irritated trying to buy lunch at a local Burger King, and then makes one “whopper” of a 911 call, refusing to leave the drive through lane.

"No I’m not moving anywhere until you give me back my coupons, anyway the managers taken, I’m calling the police," the caller said to 911 dispatch.

The 73-year-old customer was trying to pay for his order with buy-one-get-free whopper coupons at this Burger King on Madison Avenue in Lakewood Thursday afternoon.

Officers responded quickly and soon learned what the man's beef was all about

The caller told 911, "Anyway the guy took my coupons and he won’t give them back to me and he won’t give me the free whopper that they call for either."

The manager had no comment on the situation.

But, according to the police report, "he received the coupons in Texas and was advised that they are no good in Ohio. He was also advised he is not allowed to return to this Burger King.”

Police say, the man did finally get his coupons back and no one was charged.
