The sauce for a spicy Italian sandwich was apparently a must have for one Florida man. The man, Reginald Peterson, called 911 twice after a sandwich shop left off the sauce. According to a police report, Peterson initially called the emergency number Thursday so that officers could have his subs made correctly. The second call was to complain that police officers weren’t arriving fast enough. Workers at the Subway sandwich shop told police that Peterson, 42, became belligerent and yelled when they were fixing his order. When officers arrived, they tried to calm Peterson and explain the proper use of 911, but those efforts failed, so he was charged with making false 911 calls.
