United fan calls police over Nani red card

Nani gets his marching orders from Cuneyt Cakir
A Manchester United fan who called police to report a ‘crime’ after Nani’s sending off in the Champions League clash with Real Madrid has apologised.
The 18-year-old was so incensed by the ‘injustice’ of the red card at Old Trafford, which arguably cost United the game, that he dialled his local Nottinghamshire force.
Unsurprisingly they decided against arresting referee Cuneyt Cakir and instead gave the teenager a stern ticking off.
Chief Inspector Ted Antill, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “While this recent example may be amusing, it illustrates the sort of insincere calls we have to deal with on a daily basis in the control room.
“In this case, the man realised his bad judgement and apologised and we decided not to pursue it further.”
Other examples of wasting police time include the woman in the United States who dialled 911 to complain that her local McDonald’s had run out of chicken nuggets, and the concerned man from South Wales who called in to report a bright stationary light in the sky.
An officer dashed straight round, only discover it was...the moon.
People like this guy are the ones who stop people who really need the police getting the help they need. Get a grip.
you have got to smile tho.if this was the worst thing that happened would life not be great..
