Police Blotter: 911 Persistence Proves Costly
A man insists he was trying to call 915 ... all three times he dialed 911 last week. That and more in this week's police blotter.
Maybe this guy should get a phone with bigger buttons. Or maybe a rotary phone is the way to go.
And he certainly shouldn't be hanging out with this guy.
At 2:05 p.m. Nov. 7, a man who told police he was dialing 915 and not 911 was warned about misuse of the emergency number after dialing the latter.
It was the second time in two days the man dialed 911, and police told him he would get a citation if he dialed it again.
Just 29 minutes later, the man, whom police believed was intoxicated, dialed 911 again and was issued a citation.
That and the following incident were included in the Greenfield Police Department log for the week of Nov. 5- 11:
- A 29-year-old man was arrested for second offense operating while intoxicated at the intersection of 76th Street and West Holmes Avenue at 2 a.m. Nov. 5.
