Watercooler Talk
DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP)­­-Authorities said a man was arrested after calling 911 twice for a ride and saying he was hungry.

Police reports said Benjamin Dewer, 26, was charged early Wednesday with making false calls to 911.

The report said Dewer was apparently drunk when police found him sitting on a sidewalk. He asked police for a ride to a park and told them he was hungry.

When police refused, Dewer walked away and called 911 a second time for a ride.

Dewer was being held behind bars at the Palm Beach County Jail on a $1,000 bond.
