St. John's County, Florida (SafeCITY) - George McMurrain, a 57-year-old St. John's man, was arrested after he allegedly called 911 to ask for a ride to the liquor store.

According to the St. John's County Sheriff's Office, McMurrain allegedly called 911 - not once, but twice - asking for a ride to a local liquor store.

Investigators say a deputy was dispatched to the Budget Inn where McMurrain was reportedly staying in order to give him a ride. A ride to jail, that is.

Here's a transcript of the 911 call

Dispatcher: This is 911.
Suspect: I need a, I need a -- a ride.
Dispatcher: You need a ride?
Suspect: Yes, to the liquor store.
Dispatcher: Um.
Suspect: Sheriff said she'd give me a ride.
Dispatcher: OK, you're going to have to call somebody else, sir. You called 911. We can't come give you a ride.
Suspect: Even the sheriff said she'd give me a ride.
Dispatcher: The sheriff said they'd give you a ride to the liquor store?
Suspect: That's correct.
Dispatcher: Wrong.

Investigators say a small amount of marijuana was found during their investigation.

McMurrain was booked into jail on charges of misuse of 911 and possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana.
