CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Recently, Buffalo Grove has had its share of news reports that reached the national level. This time it’s about an Emergency 9-1-1 call center becoming involved with a kid who won’t eat his dinner and is in a dispute with his father.

911 Call to BG Dad whose son wouldn’t eat dinner.
Buffalo Grove father of kid that won’t eat dinner, speaking with Northwest Central Dispatch 9-1-1 telecommunications call-taker: “If you really want to come, you’re welcome to come …”

The word on the street is that a 10-year old boy called 9-1-1 to complain about his dinner. But actually the boy dialed 9-1-1 and then hung up. The emergency 9-1-1 center, Northwest Central Dispatch, like most 9-1-1 centers, will attempt to call back ‘9-1-1 hangups’ because ‘hangups’ could be caused by a person who managed to dial 9-1-1, but collapsed because of a medical problem; or the ‘hangup’ could be caused by an offender who forced a crime victim to hang up just after the crime victim dialed 9-1-1.

When the boy dialed 9-1-1 and hung up, the 9-1-1 calltaker called the number back. Stefan Cristoltean, answered the phone and told the calltaker that his son had been misbehaving and wouldn’t eat his dinner: “I told him to call 911. He’s misbehaving in front of me and I told him, ‘Call them, let them come over here and see who’s right.’ And he called 9-1-1” And the child did just that, but he hung up apparently without saying anything.

The father told the 9-1-1 calltaker that he is the boss of the house, but that his son had an attitude. Apparently the father felt frustrated that there was a dispute with his son, who he felt he couldn’t control … A little ridiculous, most say, but not quite the same thing as a caller a few months ago, from another city, who called 9-1-1 because they weren’t satisfied with the food they got at a fast food drive-up window. 9-1-1 abuse?

The news story from Buffalo Grove reached and websites this past week.
