"Hi, umm...is it possible to get a police to escort us...um...to a wedding because we're late," the female caller said.

The dispatcher refused her request right away.

"No, that's definitely not something the deputies will do," the female dispatcher said.

The caller seemed taken aback.

"Oh, ok," she said.

The dispatcher closed out the call by thanking the caller.

No charges were filed, according to Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office used the bizarre call to its advantage by taking to their Facebook and Twitter pages with this public service announcement: “We know weddings could be stressful but please, If you’re late to the wedding, DON’T call 9-1-1. Do not call 911 unless it is an emergency.”
