Man busted for hundreds of dirty-talking 911 calls

Timothy Lawrence of Avon Park, Florida was arrested and jailed  for making 218 false calls to 911 on three days last month.
 
On Feb. 13, between 2 and 10:52 a.m., Lawrence is said to have made 151 calls to the 911 center at the Highlands County Sheriff's Office. He would talk only to female dispatchers and made sexually explicit remarks to them. When the female dispatchers asked if the caller needed emergency assistance, he said, "no."

This same pattern continued on Feb. 15, when Lawrence reportedly made 35 911 calls between 1:53 and 8:07 a.m. Thirty-three more calls came between 10:43 a.m. and 1:34 p.m. on Feb. 20. (info from Tampa Bay Online)
