Man Calls 911 For Iphone Emergency

Man Calls 911 For Iphone Emergency, People call 911 for a lot of stupid reasons, and god bless our emergency operators for having to deal with some of the stuff they deal with. This example of 911 abuse might be the most idiotic one I’ve seen in quite some time.

In Illinois, Michael Alan Skopec, 48, was arrested after placing five calls to 911 complaining that his iPhone wasn’t working. Officers were dispatched to Skopec’s house after he repeatedly used the emergency service to report his broken Apple device. Once they were there, they arrested him for “refusing to comply with orders from deputies,” according to The Smoking Gun.

In a shocking development, the Sheriff’s Office says that alcohol was involved.

Because Mr. Skopec decided to get hammered drunk and try to work his iPhone, we the public are given the gift of the 911 tapes. And boy, are they great. Not only are they great because Skopec is such an idiot, but it shows just how patient 911 operators can be in the face of someone who is obviously wasting their time. Amazing.
