A Florida man was arrested after allegedly placing several calls to 911 with requests that the authorities release the drug lord El Chapo and incarcerate President Biden.
Early in the morning on May 8, someone later identified as 29-year-old Jacob Ryan Philbeck placed a call to 911, and Pasco County Sheriff’s Office deputies spoke to the man.
According to reports, the caller wanted to let the authorities know that the drug lord El Chapo should be freed from incarceration. Philbeck also reportedly informed them that President Joe Biden should be placed in prison.
It was explained to the man that the 911 service is not meant to be used for issues unrelated to criminal or emergent situations, and Philbeck was told that his issues did not qualify as an emergency. The deputies asked him not to call back unless he had an emergency.
Not long after he placed the first call, Philbeck reportedly dialed 911 again and allegedly made the same statements about El Chapo and President Biden.
Since he reportedly continued to abuse the 911 system, the authorities went to Philbeck’s residence in Palm Harbor.
According to the police report, the deputies found that Philbeck was in the middle of his third call to 911 when they showed up at his home.
It was asserted that Philbeck was abusing the 911 system, and he was told to disconnect the call.
The deputies placed Philbeck under arrest, and he was processed and booked into the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of a $150 bond. He is expected to face charges for misdemeanor misuse of the 911 system. He was released from custody later in the day.
