You call 911 when you are in trouble, not when you’re going to cause trouble. Who doesn’t know that? Well, there is this one guy … As reported by Lancasteronline.com:
At 11:45 a.m., [52-year-old Dennis] Auker called 911 and said he was going to beat up his neighbor and put him in the hospital, [Ephrata police Lt. Tom] Shumaker said. (The two neighbors had a verbal dispute earlier Thursday morning, Shumaker said. He did not know what it was about, but said they have had ongoing issues with each other.)
Auker told the dispatcher he would call 911 back when he was finished with the assault.
That call? Not such a good idea.
Police responded to the 100 block of East Walnut Street to ensure the neighbor’s safety when he returned home.
When he did, police arrested Auker. He was charged before District Judge Tony Russell and was committed to Lancaster County Prison after failing to post $5,000 bail.
