The man told authorities he needed a help with a domestic situation.
But deep down, all he apparently wanted was a beer.
Pinellas deputies said that late Thursday night they got a 911 call from Seminole resident Robert Hagerman, 56.
Hagerman said he needed help because his daughter was hitting him, throwing things and using drugs.
Deputies arrived shortly after 11 p.m. Father and daughter were both home. Hagerman, however, was “very intoxicated and uncooperative,” a report said.
Authorities quickly determined his story was a lie.
Hagerman’s daughter told deputies her dad called police because she wouldn’t buy him a beer. She used her cell phone to record his threats to make fake statements to the police and played the audio for authorities.
Hagerman was arrested on a charge of making a false report of a crime.
He was in the Pinellas County Jail on Friday afternoon in lieu of $150 bail.
