Missing Clam Chowder

He certainly loved his chowder.

The Middletown Press reports that 70-year-old Sok Yi was arrested Monday after allegedly calling 911 four times, yelling about someone throwing his clam chowder into a dumpster.

Yi admitted there was no emergency but called 911 because he had no other number to contact police.  Police issued him a misdemeanor summons to appear for misusing the 911 system.

The just an hour later, Yi again called 911 — this time to complain about being issued the summons.

When police arrived they found Yi lying in his bed, intoxicated still complaining about the summons.  This time, Yi was arrested and advised he would be taken into police custody.  At first he wouldn’t get out of bed.  Then he refused to be handcuffed, then refused to put on his shoes or leave his home.

Finally, Li complied.  He was charged and released on a promise to appear in court March 12.
