INDIANA, Pa. – Police say a western Pennsylvania man with a penchant for making unnecessary emergency calls recently called 911 to complain of chest pains, just so he could ask medics to help him fix his air conditioner.
Twenty-six-year-old Travis Turner, of Indiana, Pa., was charged Wednesday with obstructing emergency services and disorderly conduct.
Troopers say Turner has called Indiana County 911 dispatchers or the state police 63 times in the last three years for minor or harassing complaints.
In December, they charged him. The complaint was later withdrawn and Turner was warned to stop making such calls.
But police say Turner called 911 again Sunday afternoon. They say when an ambulance arrived, Turner said he didn’t really have any medical issues — but he did need help with his air conditioner. – Original Article on CBS News
BOLD move by Travis Turner. He must have balls the size of small trucks to think that the right move is to call 911 for help with his A/C unit. Next time I need help around the house I may just call 911, complain of a possible broken leg, and have them help me cook dinner when they arrive. Bonus points to Travis Turner on using “chest pains” as his ailment. That will get ambulance drivers to your house pretty damn quick. It’s hot out there, sweaty people need there A/Cs STAT.
