Man arrested after repeatedly calling 911 for non-emergencies



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A 53-year-old Cobb County teacher was arrested April 30 after repeatedly calling 911 for non-emergencies.

The deputy dispatched to the address on Ivy Summit Court was told the sheriff’s office had already been to that location twice the night before.

The man was impaired, stumbled outside and had slurred speech when the deputy arrived. He told the deputy he didn’t know what was going on and “was having an Ambien moment.” He said he had not been drinking and said he didn’t remember calling 911 except once.

Later, the deputy smelled alcohol on the man and the man said he drank every night.

The man said he called 911 the first time because he was lying on the concrete by the pool and needed help. He said he was told by another deputy to not call 911 unless it was an emergency.

Records showed the man called 911 about lying on the concrete. Then an hour later he called again.

He was arrested for unlawful conduct during a 911 call.
