NEW CASTLE, Ind. (WISH) - A New Castle man's hunger for a cheeseburger landed him in jail.
Fifty two-year-old Gregory Jackson Sr. was so hungry this past Friday night, he called 911 to get it. Not just once, but according to the New Castle Police incident report, nine times in about a 90 minute span.
Instead of sending him a cheeseburger, however, New Castle police sent an officer to Jackson's apartment and arrested him. It turns out, he was wanted on a warrant for failing to appear at a court hearing issued two days before making the emergency cheeseburger calls.
Jackson has an extensive arrest and conviction record. Most of his convictions are alcohol-related.
He was scheduled to have a bench trial Tuesday on public intoxication.
Now, he is being held in the Henry County Jail, awaiting an appearance scheduled for Wednesday.
Police didn't immediately arrest Jackson on any preliminary charges related to the 911 calls.
