Charles Dennison of New Port Richey, Fla., was arrested for allegedly calling the police to complain that his mother had taken his beer away from him. He is now facing criminal charges, the St. Petersburg Times reports.
Dennison, 32, was arrested and charged with making false 911 phone calls.
As previously discussed, according to Florida law, the 911 service can only be used by the public to report an emergency, and any other use, such as reporting a false alarm or false complaint, is a misdemeanor.
But it takes four such convictions for these actions to become a felony misuse of the 911 service.
The law states that it is criminal misuse to knowingly call 911 for any purpose other than obtaining public safety assistance.
This incident is similar to another Florida man who arrested on a charge of misuse of 911, as previously discussed in this blog.
In that case, David Bouchard was arrested after making eighteen 911 phone calls in two months to make accusations about a Manatee County Sheriff's Office deputy making out with a prostitute who lived across the street from him.
He had previously been warned not to make non-emergency calls on the 911 system, according to the sheriff's report.
In this latest case, police say Charles Dennison wanted his mother arrested for taking his beer. He was charged with making false 911 calls and was jailed on $150 bond.
