Man calls 911 to report... the cops?

Posted: Updated:

An Albany man is cited for calling 911 and asking police to make the police leave his house.  

About 3:00 Saturday morning, Kenneth Payton was given a citation for misuse of the 911 center.

Officers say they were called to the home for an unknown problem and saw Payton arguing with a woman.     

Police say Payton then called 911 and asked them to send more police... to make the first responding officer leave.     

Payton said that's not the way it happened.   "No, what am I going to call them for and tell them to leave my house."

So it's a misunderstanding?  "It had to be a misunderstanding or a miscommunication somewhere.  Because that's stupid."  Payton said.       

Payton says he plans to go to court and argue his case.
