No charges filed

BROCKTON, Mass. - Police in Massachusetts say a 10-year-old boy called 911 because he didn't want to go to bed.

It was determined that 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.
