Police called to argument over American Idol at a Bromley house
A HEATED discussion about the merits of American Idol is just one of the quirkier incidents police have been sent to after receiving a 999 call in the past week.
Officers were called to an address in Bromley at about 3.30am on Friday morning (September 28) by a concerned member of the public after they heard a woman screaming.
But when the emergency response unit arrived the embarrassed occupants admitted they had been involved in a heated discussion about the American talent show.
Both apologised profusely that the police had to be called and for wasting police time.
A Bromley police spokesman said: "We were happy that there was an innocent explanation to this and that there was no-one requiring assistance on this occasion."
