Man called 911 because neighbors had his video game controllers: Police
A Florida man was charged with abusing the 911 system after calling to report that his neighbors had his video game controllers, according to this report:
Around 9:30 p.m. May 15, after officers responded to the man’s initial call at an apartment complex on MacFarlan Avenue, they told him “not to use the emergency line again for this problem,” according to a Fort Walton Beach Police Department arrest report.
The neighbors then called 911 and said the man was screaming that he was going to blow everything up and was walking around with a stick, the report reads. An officer determined the man didn’t threaten anyone specifically and asked him to stay inside for the night. His Xbox controllers were returned to him.
Around 10:30 p.m., the man called 911 in regards to his Xbox controllers and President Barack Obama, saying he would only speak to a female or black officer, the report reads. The man was found walking up and down the parking lot yelling.
