According to transcripts of the calls, the irritated dispatcher initially hung up on Jackson.

Dispatcher: "OK, so why did you call 911 for, what do you need?"
Dispatcher: "Do you have an emergency?"
Jackson: "A cheeseburger."
Dispatcher: "Have a good day."

After eight more calls, the dispatcher told Jackson "we don't take cheeseburger orders" and sent police to his home in New Castle, The Star Press reported.
