However, it seems that one Ontarian is facing the consequences of dialing 911 to complain. According to the Hamilton Police, a male was arrested and charged with Mischief after calling 911 to complain about the Amber Alert on October 1, 2019.

According to police, the male called 911 to "purposely tie up emergency lines." Police state that the man was angry that the alarm went off when he was trying to rest and even told police that he would continue to call the line because of the alert.

The man, who was later identified as 70-year-old Douglas Bagshaw was released and will appear in court on October 15, 2019.

However, Hamilton Police are now reminding the public that 911 is for emergencies only. In 2018, the Hamilton Police received 195,000 calls, yet one-third of these calls were for non-emergencies, such as people complaining about Amber Alerts.

While the Hamilton Police do not state how or if they will be charging other people who misuse the 911 line, they do state that non-emergency calls take up valuable resources and 911 should only be used when there is a real emergency.

This charge comes after Canadians have been demanding for police to do more about those who misuse 911 lines.

After the Amber Alert on October 1, Canadians were taking to Twitter to demand that more be done about the multiple people who are taking up the resource to complain. Many Canadians suggesting fines or charges for those who misuse the line.
