BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) – Police in Massachusetts say a 10-year-old boy called 911 because he didn’t want to go to bed.

Brockton police say the boy made the emergency call just after 8 p.m. Wednesday and told the dispatcher he was calling to report his mother because he did not want to go to bed.

There was no emergency.

The Enterprise (http://bit.ly/YoKmJZ ) reports that according to the police log, an officer went to the boy’s home and explained to him when it’s appropriate – and when it’s not – to call 911.

No one was charged.

    The police weren’t called, but another ten year old told his mother he couldn’t be grounded. He had given up being grounded for Lent. :)
