    In the UK, the expression is: "to read someone the riot act". As in: John read Bill the riot act.

    I have heard "read someone the riot act" also in AE usage.
    One of my best friends just said to me over Christmas that his wife had read him the riot act after she found out that he had (secretly) gone to a strip bar.
