Boy Calls 911 to Invite Deputies to Thanksgiving Dinner

WALTON COUNTY, Fla. (CBS12) - A little boy and his family in Florida's Panhandle had some special visitors on Thanksgiving.

The Walton County Sheriff's Office says Billy, a young fan, called 911 to invite deputies over for dinner.

"With all the bad calls we take on a daily basis this one was a welcomed happy call that made all of us smile," said Lead Communications Officer Monica Webster.

Deputy Damon Byrd and Deputy Aaron Ethridge stopped by for a visit.

The deputies presented Billy with a special Sheriff's badge. He even had the chance to sit in their patrol cars.

The Sheriff's Office said while it does not "encourage this use of 911, we are so honored at the invitation."
