POST FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Police say a northern Idaho man called 911 a dozen times to report being overcharged at a bar and now faces a $1,000 fine and a year in jail.

Post Falls police Capt. Pat Knight says an officer gave Phillip Poissonnier of Post Falls a ride home after he was kicked out of Club Tequila just after 1 a.m. Monday.

Knight tells Spokane, Washington, television station KXLY that Poissonnier then made 12 emergency calls, the first wanting officers to come back to discuss his bar tab.

The TV station reports that a bartender produced Poissonnier’s receipts showing he was charged $30 for the 10 beers he ordered.

Police say he faces a misdemeanor citation over misusing 911.

Poissonnier couldn’t be reached by The Associated Press on Tuesday.
