The 25-year-old, whose name was not released, began calling emergency services in the middle of January. At first, he didn't say a word, preferring to sit silently on the line while a dispatcher repeatedly asked what the problem was. After a couple of dozen calls, he reportedly upped the ante and started breathing heavily, as if he was in some sort of distress, until he heard sirens approach.
Eventually, the dispatch center put a trace on the line and sent cops directly to the man's mobile home, where they found six phones, all of which were found to have been used in the 911-of-a-kind crime. When asked what prompted the onslaught of emergency calls, the suspect said, "Drunken boredom."
