Sheriff’s deputies in Collier County, Florida arrested Mijael Laboripino on Sunday after they say he repeatedly called 911, trying to get a deputy to keep his landlord out of his residence. Laboripino was charged with misuse of the 911 system.
Laboripino first called 911 around 3:20 p.m. on Sunday, but hung up, according to an arrest report. A minute later, Laboripino called back, requesting a Spanish speaking deputy to come to his home.
When the deputy arrived, he learned that Laboripino’s landlord had served him with eviction papers, which Laboripino disputed. Laboripino wanted the deputy to keep the landlord from his residence to prevent him from posting any additional eviction notices. The deputy said he could not do that because it was a civil matter.
Laboripino called 911 twice while the deputy was speaking with him. He then called again after the deputy left, requesting another deputy because he did not like the information he had been provided.
Later that day, Laboripino arrived at a sheriff’s substation, asking to speak to a deputy, but not to the same deputy he had spoken to earlier.
He then called 911 again, but got angry when the 911 dispatcher again told him that his dispute with his landlord was a civil matter. Another deputy did respond and arrested Laboripino. (info from Naples Daily News)
