EAST ALBANY, Georgia (WALB) – Larenzo Riggins was hungry when he walked into the East Albany, Georgia McDonald’s .

“I went in to order seven McDoubles and one McChicken, and one fry,” Riggins said.

But after he walked outside, he says he noticed that wasn’t what he got.

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.

“She was trying to get an attitude with me and I said I’m going to call the police,” said Riggins.

And that’s what he did, Lorenzo called the police. Lorenzo’s call to police sent him to jail. When a police officer arrived at the restaurant, Riggins was arrested and charged with violation of emergency 911 telephone.

“I called the police and thinking that everything all cool by calling the police, I didn’t know I was misusing 911,” said Riggins.

Riggins spent the night in jail and 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.

Riggins also has a message for you.

“I would like to say check your food before you leave, always be careful when you go buy food anywhere you go,” said Riggins.

And if there’s a problem, don’t call 911. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
