    :lol:

    Police overreact when frustrated installer comments that the homeowner has him "held hostage," referring to the homeowner demanding that they do it correctly.

    Dispatcher misunderstands and dials 911.

    Police through woman homeowner face doen at gun point and in handcuffs . . .

    :rotfl:

    Actually, it is! The Pyles live in Savage, MN. I did not even notice what the quote looked like when I took it out of its context! :D

    Savage police did this. Savage police did that.

    hehehehe I edited my post to add the word "hope" as I originally meant it.

    We respond to all alarms even if we get a call stating it was a false alarm just to make sure we don't have a hostage/duress situation. I do believe that I would have toned things down a bit though.
