BRADENTON, Florida (AP) -- A Bradenton man was arrested after reportedly calling 911 a total of 18 times in two months.
Manatee County deputies arrested 55-year-old David G. Bouchard on Tuesday, when authorities say he called 911 three times. During the third call, Bouchard reportedly accused the deputy who had responded to an earlier call of making out with a prostitute who lived across the street from him.
Another deputy responded to Bouchard's home, and it was learned that Bouchard had made 15 other 911 calls since Feb. 15. He had been previously warned not to call 911 for non-emergencies.
Bouchard was arrested and charged with misuse of 911. He was being held on $1,500 bail.
