NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Nashville mayoral candidate's automated campaign message accidentally called 9-1-1 last week.
The call from candidate Buck Dozier lasts almost 50 seconds and -- ironically-- plays Dozier's voice saying he would make public safety Metro's highest priority.
Campaign manager Mike Kopp said the call was an honest mistake.
A campaign volunteer accidentally entered an emergency dispatch number into a database and sent it to a marketing company that makes campaign calls automatically.
Kopp said -- quote -- "There's no way it's going to happen again."
