PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — A dispatcher was asked by late wedding guests if they could have a police escort help get them to the event on time.

ABC News reported that the unidentified callers asked the dispatcher if they could be rushed to the wedding with the help of a police officer, because they were running late.

"Hi, umm ... is it possible to get a police to escort us ... um ... to a wedding because we're late,"  the caller asked.

"No, that's definitely not something the deputies will do," the dispatcher responded.

"Oh, OK," the caller said.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office posted a PSA on social media in response to the call, urging people to use 911 responsibly.

“We know weddings could be stressful but please, if you’re late to the wedding, DON’T call 911. Do not call 911 unless it is an emergency.”
