Early this week, Sen. John McCain's brother Joe, while in Alexandria, VA, called 911 because he was irritated with traffic. When the operator asked him if he was really calling the emergency line to complain about highway conditions, Joe McCain responded, "F--k you" and hung up.
According to WJLA 7 in Alexandria, the operator dialed the caller back. Shockingly enough, Joe McCain's voicemail answered.
Audio of the call plays out as such:
Operator: "911, state your emergency."
Caller: "It's not an emergency but, do you know why on one side at the damn drawbridge of 95 traffic is stopped for 15 minutes and yet traffic's coming the other way?"
Operator: "Sir, are you calling 911 to complain about traffic?"
Caller: "F--k you."
When the emergency operator called back, she was greeted with, "Hi this is Joe McCain. I can't take this message now because I'm involved in a very (inaudible) important political project... I hope on Nov. 4th we have elected John."
