ALLIANCE, Ohio (WYTV) – WKBN is digging deeper into a Monday 911 call in Alliance which led police to charge a woman with misusing the emergency system, while she says she called a non-emergency number after a restaurant clerk became angry with her.

Police charged Tracey McCloud, 44, with misusing the 911 system, a misdemeanor. WKBN reached out to McCloud, who declined to go on camera for this story.

McCloud told WKBN that she wanted her money back because the food she bought was spoiled, then called police when the clerk refused and became angry.

Police said McCloud called the emergency number late Monday afternoon to say the Chinese food she’d ordered from a local restaurant was “not up to par for her liking.”

An Alliance Police sergeant said that from his knowledge of the phone system, it would not have been possible for McCloud to call a non-emergency number and then get transferred to an emergency dispatcher.

According to Alliance Police records, McCloud has previously been charged with felonious assault and driving under suspension.

McCloud is scheduled to appear in court Friday.
