A 67-year-old Columbia, Tenn., man was jailed Saturday and accused of calling 911 at least nine times for non-emergency reasons, according to the Columbia Daily Herald.

Most of the calls were hang ups, but  police say Allen Troy Brooks called 911 and asked the dispatcher for a ride to get some beer. Brooks was arrested and charged with aggravated 911 calls in a non-emergency situation — a class A misdemeanor. He was later released on bond.

Here’s a partial transcript of the 911 call, taken from the video below by ABC News’ Nashville affiliate WKRN.

Caller: “Hey, you want to take me to the store?”

911 operator: “Want to take you to the store?”

Caller: “I want to go the store to get me a beer. I’ll pay you.”

911 operator: “OK. Sir. I can’t take you to the store to get a beer.”

Caller: “Yeah, you can come now.”

911 operator: “No sir, you’ve got 911.”

BUSTED. That’s a beer run fail.
