    For children, if A has done something wrong and B wants to put the blame on them, B tells on A to the teacher.
    For adults, if A has committed a crime and B wants A arrested, B would go to the police and file a complaint.
    Also, if B did not want it known they he/she went to the police, B could inform on A to the police. Using slang, we'd say that B "dropped a dime" on A.
