STOCK ISLAND, Fla. (AP) - A man who called 911 three times has been arrested on drug charges in the Florida Keys.
A Monroe County Sheriff's Office report says 51-year-old Thomas Ecker called 911 three times early Sunday morning to complain of chest pains, but he hung up abruptly after each call.
Two deputies responded to the area and reported seeing Ecker throwing a plastic bag with cocaine in the grass. The report also says deputies found marijuana on him.
Ecker denied calling 911, but his cellphone rang when the deputies called the number back.
Ecker was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia and misuse of 911. Jail records show he's being held without bond. It was not immediately known if he has an attorney.
