Hudson, Florida -- A homeless man was arrested Sunday for trying to use 911 to get a taxi ride.
According to the arrest report, around 10:54 p.m., 55-year-old Michael Barker called 911 nine times requesting assistance for various things, including requests for a taxi ride.
At one point, Barker called Pasco Fire Rescue complaining of chest pains, but hung up before giving his location. Dispatchers were able to find Barker near the First United Methodist Church in Hudson through his cell phone number.
When a deputy arrived and found Barker, he was on the phone with 911 again saying he lost his football and was standing on his head on top of a telephone pole. When Barker spotted the deputy, he immediately hung up and covered his head in a blanket.
While talking with the deputy, Barker admitted to calling 911 "like eleven times, 'cause I need you to call me a taxi." He also said he was not suffering from chest pains and did not need medical assistance.
Barker was arrested for misuse of 911 and taken to Land O'Lakes Jail without incident.
