911 Spammer Arrested.

Surfing web this evening came across an odd bit of news. Guy out of California was arrested for making more than 27,000 calls to 911 emergency service on his cellphone.

a quote from the original article:

HAYWARD, Calif. - Authorities have arrested a prolific 911 cell phone caller who is believed to have made more than 27,000 emergency calls, overwhelming California Highway Patrol and Hayward 911 systems.

The 911 calls started flooding in last May. The caller responded to emergency operators with bodily noises, muttering and pressing beep tones.

Full story can be found here from Associated Press

Someone has just too much time on their hands in my opinion...
