Utah Boy Calls 911 Because Mom Won’t Give Him More Oreos

HONEYVILLE, Utah (KSTU) — A 7-year-old boy from Honeyville is gaining attention after placing a misleading 911 call.

Officers said the young boy called 911 claiming that his mom had thrown a knife at him. When deputies responded to the home, they found out his story wasn’t exactly true.

The 7-year-old eventually came clean to officers, telling them he lied to the 911 dispatcher because his mom wouldn’t give him more Oreo cookies.

Officers said they had a long talk with the boy about what 911 is for, and that frivolous use of 911 can result in criminal charges.

Officials said the boy is too young to be arrested.
