Police in Britain said a man was warned for using the 999 emergency number to complain a prostitute was not as attractive as advertised.

West Midlands police said a dispatcher at the Solihull, England, call center took a call Tuesday evening from a man who said he wanted to report a prostitute for "breaching the Sale of Goods Act" by claiming to be more attractive than he found her to be when he met her at a hotel parking lot, The Telegraph reported Friday.

"When he raised this issue with the woman concerned, she allegedly took his car keys, ran away from the car and threw them back at him, prompting him to call police," a police spokesman said. "An officer in the Solihull contact center advised the caller that no offenses had been committed by the woman and that soliciting for sex was in fact illegal. Despite the man refusing to give his details, police have been able to identify him and have sent him a letter warning him about his actions."

The man was advised that charges of wasting police time can carry prison sentences of up to six months, the spokesman said.
