It is public knowledge that 911 is a Save Our Soul (SOS) number, that is the number to call when you’re in danger or in case of emergency. However, a bored 45-year-old Stephen Ramsey called 911 just to ask for a date. Ramsey was charged with misuse of 911 and currently in jail. HuffingtonPost posted the audio:
Not being able to find a date might seem like an emergency, but it’s not a reason to call 911.
Case in point: Stephen Ramsey, 45, of Naples, Florida was arrested Tuesday after allegedly calling 911 three times and asking the dispatcher if she was interested on going on a date, WZVN TV reports.
For the record, she wasn’t.
Still, Ramsey kept her on the phone for more than six minutes and asked her if she was “into handcuffs,” the Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
He then laughed before finally hanging up the phone.
A deputy was sent to the suspect’s home. Ramsey allegedly told him he was “looking for a date or escort service to help him pass the time.”
The officer said Ramsey was “slurring his speech heavily” and had a “strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath,” according to Fox4Now.com.
