Wacko from Waco called 911 for cab 15 times

A man accused of calling 911 in Waco, Texas 15 times in a row because he was tired of waiting for a cab was arrested Tuesday. Each time Kevin Waits called, the dispatcher told him to call a taxi service and that police could not help him, said Waco police officer Steve Anderson.

Police eventually went to his apartment and found a cab waiting for Waits, who was also there but did not have the $26 taxi fee.

Waits was arrested after being taken to the hospital because he told an officer that he had used methamphetamine, Anderson said. Waits remained in custody Tuesday afternoon awaiting bond on charges of harassment and theft of service. (info from Waco Tribune-Herald)
