Man Charged After Calling 911 More Than 100 Times to Bring Him Milk and Find TV Remote
He has been banned from using 911 unless it is an emergency.
A 62-year-old Georgia man has been barred from calling 911 after authorities say he called emergency personnel more than 100 times for mundane tasks around his home.
Cops have issued an arrest warrant for the Cobb County man, who has allegedly dialed 911 a total of 118 times in the last three years.
Cobb County Fire Chief Randy Crider says that when first responders arrive, the man asks them to bring him milk, get his cellphone from across the room and even find the TV remote.
Crider also says every time firefighters and paramedics had responded to the man’s home, they have expected an emergency, but that has never been the case.
The man's actions have been blasted by authorities because every time fire personnel and paramedics respond to the man’s home, it ties up resources dedicated to actual emergencies.
The warrant bans him from calling 911 "unless it was an actual medical emergency."
The man has not turned himself in and local news outlets have not been able to reach him or his attorney for comment.
