A Florida man repeatedly referred to as 911 providing his ideas on President Joe Biden — in addition to former Mexican drug lord “El Chapo” — leading to his arrest quickly after, authorities say.
Now, the Palm Harbor man is dealing with a misuse of a wi-fi 911 system cost, in line with the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.
During his first 911 name on May 8, he instructed a dispatcher “‘El Chapo’ needed to be freed from prison and ‘President Biden’ needed to be placed into prison,” an arrest report obtained by McClatchy News states.
The man was knowledgeable that his name was a “non-emergency situation” and was instructed to not contact 911 for “non-criminal activity,” in line with the report.
However, the person referred to as once more quickly after, requesting to talk with deputies, police say. When deputies requested why he referred to as once more, he repeated that El Chapo “needed to be freed” and Biden “needed to be placed in prison.”
After he referred to as 911 a 3rd time inside an hour making the identical assertion, he was arrested and brought into custody, in line with the sheriff’s workplace.
He was held on a $150 bond, the report says. A spokeswoman for the sheriff’s workplace confirmed he made bond the day of his arrest in a press release to McClatchy News.
Palm Harbor is about 25 miles northwest of Tampa.
