A quick blurb in the Tampa Times online about how calling the emergency hotline for marijuana and Kool Aid tends to get a person in trouble…
Bored last Sunday, Saint Pete resident Jarvis Sutton, 34, was in the mood for three things: drugs, food and drinks. While that itself is not a crime, what he did next landed him in hot water.
The suspect proceeded to call 911 alomost 80 times throughout the day, requesting Kool Aid, “weed” and various food items. Eventually, police had enough. An officer wrote in his arrest report “The defendant admitted to calling 911 because he ‘wanted Kool-Aid, burgers and weed to be delivered to him,’ “.
The suspect was arrested and charged with “misuse of the 911 system“. To make matters more interesting, on the way to jail the suspect began chewing the metal cage in the police cruiser.
Mr. Sutton has had several arrests in Pinellas for charges such as possession of marijuana, battery on a law enforcement officer, failure to appear, trespassing, and a violation of probation among others.
