Is there anyone who doesn’t know that 911 is just for emergencies? The Juice is guessing this dude knew, but was not deterred from calling it an absurd number of times. What stopped him? As reported by The Santa Cruz Sentinel:
From July 30 to Tuesday, Nathan Jarvie, 33, called 911 to chat with dispatchers and officers about nonemergency things such as dirt, overpopulation and other random things, Watsonville Sgt. Tony Magdayao said.
“It’s pretty common sense that if somebody calls in excess of 100 times, I think it’s time for law enforcement to take action against them,” Magdayao said.
Yikes. So what happened?
Officers arrested Jarvie on Tuesday afternoon on a misdemeanor charge of harassing calls to 911.
