Boy, 5, calls 911 to report dad went through red light

Robert, 5, of Quincy, Massachusetts may have a future in law enforcement.

The Quincy Police Department on Wednesday posted to Facebook a recent recording of a 911 call Robert placed to report his father had run a red light.

"911 Quincy Police what is your emergency?"

"Daddy went through a red light. He has a black truck. He was in a brand new car, my mummy's car. "

"Then what happened?"

"He had to go to the car wash and then he went past the red light."

"Is he home right now? Can I talk to him?"


"Hello. I'm just going to apologize that's my five year old son.

"He said you ran a red light."

"Oh no I apologize."

" No problem, as long as we're all set."

"We're good. Thank you"

The dispatcher and the dad shared a laugh during the exchange before the dispatcher let the dad off the hook.

According to local reports, the father made a right turn on red after coming to a complete stop.
