A British man was busted after calling the country's equivalent of 911 to complain about an animal control issue – namely, that the hooker he'd hired turned out to be a dog!
The man, whose name was not released, called the emergency number to ask for help because he'd arranged to meet a prostitute who'd placed an ad in a newspaper – but
when she arrived, he felt "she mis-described herself totally" and was nowhere near as attractive as he'd hoped. He told the dispatcher that this was a violation of a real British law called the Sale of Goods Act, which requires honesty from sellers of services.
When the officer on the other end of the line informed him that he was actually breaking
the law by soliciting sex for hire, he hung up and went down to the station to debate the issue – and was slapped with a summons and a warning that he could face six months in prison for wasting police time.
