Unflushed toilet not an emergency: Toronto police

Toronto police say they declined to come out to a local restaurant when a man there was accused of failing to flush the toilet after using it. Police say the call was particularly egregious, since the alleged incident took place about eight hours before it was reported.

Police acknowledge failing to flush a toilet isn’t polite, but say calling the cops to report it keeps emergency dispatchers from attending to more pressing matters.
