Man Calls 911 After Daughter Refuses to Buy Him Beer

Robert Hagerman just wanted to sit back with a cold one. So he asked his daughter go buy him some beer.

She refused.

So Hagerman had a perfectly reasonable response to that and called 911 to report her.

Hagerman, 56, called the emergency number and told the dispatcher that his daughter was on drugs, throwing things and hitting him, Pinellas County deputies say.

According to his daughter, this was all part of his plan to coerce her into going to get him some beer.

And a fine plan it was, until the cops actually showed up.

According to the arrest report, police arrived to Hagerman's home around 11 p.m. last Thursday and apparently found him "very intoxicated and uncooperative."

That's when Hagerman's daughter told the deputies he had called 911 to make stuff up about about her and get her into trouble, all because she wouldn't buy him a beer.

The woman, whose name and age were withheld from the report, apparently recorded her father's threats with her cell phone and played them back for the cops.

And so the jig was apparently up.

Hagerman was arrested and charged with making a false report of a crime and held on $150 bail.
