Man Calls 911 From Jail
Police in Sandusky, Ohio say a man arrested on a disorderly conduct charge called 911 from jail to complain he was being held against his will.
The man had been handcuffed to the door of his holding cell early Sunday because officers said he wouldn't calm down and they were afraid he would hurt himself or cause damage. He'd been arrested in a dispute outside a local bar.
Police took away the man's cell phone after the 911 call was placed and included in the charges against him a count of misuse of 911.
I also liked it because it is short just like my attention span. Several items grab my attention here. First, I want to yell at him "Dude! Of course you are being held against your will.....It's JAIL." When did anyone willingly go to jail? "Excuse me officer, but I was wondering if you could house me for the night? I have always been curious about going to jail and would love the tell of the experience." Yeah. Right.
Then dude still has his cell phone. Were the police waiting for the TSA for stop by for a pat down? Dude was in a bar fight! Don't you think he might have more on him than his fists? Not that he wasn't sober. I mean all disputes outside local bars usually involve sober folks. Dude was probably there to make amends to someone and the whole deal went south. Just a simple misunderstanding.
As the police were adding the misuse of 911 to this list of charges and taking away dude's cell phone I am sure they looked at one another and said, "What the Hell?"
