An apparently misdialed 911 led a Washington Street man to threaten a police dispatcher, police said.
According to police, the man called 911, then yelled at the officer who answered, saying "you're having sex with my girlfriend."
When police responded to the address, the man said he thought he had called his girlfriend and became enraged when he heard a man's voice answer. No charges were filed.
