A 10-year-old boy in Massachusetts went to extremes to avoid going to bed.

The boy dialed 911 just after 8 p.m. and told the dispatcher he was calling to report his mother, who was trying to get him to go to bed, The Enterprise reported.

According to police records, an officer did go to the boy's home in Brockton.

But he came to explain when it was appropriate to call 911, and when it wasn't, according to The Enterprise.

No charges were filed.
