A North Carolina woman called 911 because Subway allegedly put marinara sauce on her flatbread pizza.
The woman apparently wanted pizza sauce on her Flatizza instead, and contacted the emergency line when the Gastonia, NC store wouldn’t give her a refund. She also claimed that she called 911 because an officer who was already on the scene yelled at her.
Said the woman, identified in multiple media accounts as Bevalente Hall, 37, “It’s terrible, and I got my receipt. And I told them I can’t eat that kind of sauce.” She also informed the dispatcher that “They made my mom another sandwich without a problem, but say they won’t make me a sandwich.”
Subway added the Flatizza to its menu in February.
Police charged the woman with misuse of the 911 system and released her on a $2,000 unsecured bond.

For some reason, as The Inquisitr has previously reported, there appears to be an increasing incidence of citizens using 911 to complain about food or drink disputes. For example, on New Year’s Day 2014, a Memphis grandmother called 911 according to police because she apparently ran out of beer.
In another instance, an Arizona man called 911 when his McDonald’s drive-thru order was missing hash browns. A Florida woman once called 911 three times to report that a Fort Pierce McDonald’s had run out of Chicken McNuggets. She was arrested for misusing the 911 system. A Georgia man called the emergency number because he ordered seven McDouble burgers but his bag only contained six. Police also charged him with misusing 911. About a year ago, a Florida man allegedly called 911 approximately 80 times to request a home delivery of Kool-Aid, burgers, and weed.
