[February 22, 2013]  BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) -- Police in Massachusetts say a 10-year-old boy called 911 because he didn't want to go to bed.

Brockton police say the boy made the emergency call just after 8 p.m. Wednesday and told the dispatcher he was calling to report his mother because he did not want to go to bed.

There was no emergency.

The Enterprise ( ) reports that according to the police log, an officer went to the boy's home and explained to him when it's appropriate -- and when it's not -- to call 911.

No one was charged.
