To Some, No Sauce is a Serious Crime

Move over, Jared - Subway has a new real-life devotee to take your place. Meet Reginald Peterson, who is crazy for Subway.

If I were Subway, I'd be turning this true story out of Jacksonville into a commercial right away.

Reginald Peterson needs to learn that 911 is not the appropriate place to complain that Subway left the sauce off a spicy Italian sandwich.

Authorities said the 42-year-old man dialed 911 twice last week so he could have his sub made correctly. The second call was to complain that officers weren't arriving fast enough.

Subway workers told police Peterson became belligerent and yelled when they were fixing his order. They locked him out of the store after he left to call police.When officers arrived, they tried to calm Peterson and explain the proper use of 911. Those efforts failed, and he was arrested on a charge of making false 911 calls.

  • Let’s see. Last week, you stormed out of Albertsons over a poorly-made wrap. Reginald Peterson calls 911 because his Subway foot long isn’t being created per his specifications. What the hell is going on in Florida? I say you and this guy should go on tour. Best way to advertise the event? Sandwich boards, of course.

  • Oddly, the charge might not stand up -- he didn't make false calls (i.e. lying about Subway making an error), he made stupid calls...

  • HJ’s right JP. And you want the tour to come down to Florida next? Bad things ensue.

  • cleanser,

    911 is for emergencies. if you know your call is not an emergency, then you are deliberately making false calls. granted, peterson might be stupid enough to think his situation is an emergency, but then he'd have to prove his stupidity. technically, he's only been arrested and charged. so he may yet prove his case.

  • I was being sarcastic -- to me, Peterson's stupidity or ignorance is not worthy of serious legal analysis, as much as it is worthy of pointing and laughing.
