NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Police arrested a 41-year-old man after he called 911 and told officers that he was not given the correct change after buying crack cocaine from a drug dealer, police said.

The North Charleston Police Department charged Dexter White with disorderly conduct.

The incident started Friday around 4:30 a.m., when White called authorities and told officers that he had given $60 to a drug dealer for crack and only got back $20 worth of drugs.

White said the drug dealer refused to give him $40 back.

According to a police report, White then walked away from the drug dealer, smoked the crack he purchased and then called 911.

White was locked up at the Charleston County Detention Center.
