Woman called cops over shrimp dish

A Texas restaurant cook said a customer called police after complaining that her shrimp fried rice did not have the extra shrimp that she requested.

Cook June Lee of A&D Buffalo's in Haltom City said the woman, who was at the restaurant with her boyfriend, called for a patrol officer at about 3 p.m. Monday after shouting about the number of shrimp in her dish, the Fort Worth (Texas) Star-Telegram reported Tuesday.

She started yelling, and said that she wasn't happy, Lee said, adding that there was nothing wrong with the food.

Lee said the woman and her boyfriend were gone before the officer arrived.

Some customers are happy, Lee said. Some are not.
