Phoenix: Police in a Phoenix suburb got a strange 911 call recently. A 5-year-old boy didn’t have an emergency; he just wanted to order a Happy Meal from McDonald’s.
A Mesa police officer delivered the food in person to the child, along with some advice about the proper time to use 911.
Randy Skabelund spoke to the dispatcher in a follow-up call to say there wasn’t an emergency and his son Charlie must have had his cellphone.
Officer Randolph “Scott” Valdez arrived later at the family’s home for a welfare check.
He brought the requested meal, took time to teach Charlie about when it’s the right time to call police and even posed for a few photos.
The boy’s mother, Kim Skabelund, says Valdez handled the situation with “love and kindness.
