A Maine boy who says he was only "testing" the South Portland Police Department's 911 system is apologizing to police. 

On a yellow piece of paper, the boy writes, "To The Cops. Sorry I called you and lied to your face and I will never call you again."  He added, "really sorry." Police thanked the boy and his parents for sharing the letter telling them "we're a phone call away when you needed us."
