911 Call Goes Wrong For 7-Year-Old

HONEYVILLE, Utah  Kids do say the darned this. Just ask the 7-year-old boy who is gaining attention after placing a misleading 911 call.

The young boy called 911 claiming that his mom had thrown a knife at him. But when officers arrived, the child came clean, telling them he lied to the 911 dispatcher because his mom wouldnt give him more Oreo cookies.

Officers said they had a long talk with the boy about what 911 is for, and that frivolous use of 911 can result in criminal charges.

Officials said the boy is too young to be arrested.
