I’ve been a dispatcher for about 7 years now in a medium size county in Florida…
– Had a woman call in stating she accidentally took too much melatonin. She started getting hysterical when she felt the effects of her overdose. She was getting sleepy.
– I had one woman call 911 to tell me she found a cell phone on the ground. That’s it.
– Irate elderly male calls 911 while standing in the Sheriff’s Office lobby to report the clerk not being helpful. When I told him that’s not something you use a 911 line for, he went apeshit, going as far as threatening to break into the office and shoot me. He was subsequently arrested.
– Male was arrested for domestic battery, called 911 from the backseat of the patrol car and stated he was being unlawfully imprisoned. When I told him the only thing I could do for him was to send him more deputies, he said “…no thanks” and hung up. He then proceeded to call three more times looking for a different answer. We told the deputies on scene, they took his phone away and added a charge of misuse of 911. – NearlyFearless
