Drunk-Call 911 (A Florida Man Story)

WEIRD NEWS: Drunk-Call 911

A Florida man is under arrest for misusing the 911 emergency system after he repeatedly called to demand the release of convicted drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán and the arrest of President Joe Biden.

Police in Tampa say 29-year-old Jacob Ryan Philbeck dialed 911 last weekend and told the dispatcher that "El Chapo needed to be freed" and “President Biden needed to be placed in prison." The dispatcher warned him that 911 is for emergencies only and told him not to call again. But he ignored the warning and called two more times, so police were dispatched his house. When they arrived, they found him on the phone with 911 and placed him under arrest. They also reported detecting a strong smell of alcohol on him. Philbeck was booked on charges of misusing 911.

Hot Takes:

  • Because of him, police officers had to be pulled away from what might have been a more crucial police activity. 
  • As Biden would say, "C'mon, man."
  • A notorious drug trafficker and murderer should be freed? Really?
