Man Calls 911 to Save Him From Police
LARGO, Fla. — A 38-year-old man was arrested after he called 911 and told a dispatcher he was surrounded by police officers and needed help, authorities said.
Police officers met Dana Farrell Shelton after being called to investigate a disturbance at a bar on Sunday but had found no problems and told him to move along.
Shelton, who officers said appeared intoxicated, then called 911 to report he was "surrounded by Largo police," according to an arrest affidavit.
"Our officers were standing there scratching their heads. He called, standing there in their presence," Largo Sgt. Melanie Holley said. "It's one of our 'truth is stranger than fiction' cases."
Shelton was charged with misdemeanor misuse of 911. The charge carries maximum penalties of one year in jail and $1,000 in fines.

The Eccentric Diva has never spent any amount of time with the popo and doesn't plan to any time soon. The very thought of it makes my ovaries shrivel up and turn to dust. This poor fucker was surrounded by them, oy vey! I may have a better chance at survival with KKK on a dark stretch of road in the middle of a deserted corn field. The police are some scary mofos, but you best believe if I need them I won't hesitate to call 911......*woop, woop, woop* lol
