There are plenty of times when dialing 911 during an emergency is the only sensible thing to do. If you're a drug dealer whose product has been stolen, however, calling the cops is really, really stupid. Everyone on this list made their dumb crimes worse by making dumb 911 calls over drugs. Most of them ended up in jail as a direct result of their misguided attempts at consumer protection. For this list we look at criminals who called 911 over drugs, which ultimately lead to their downfall. We're not saying they're the dumbest 911 calls of all time, but at the same time we kind of are.
We’re not here to be the fun police. If you like to get hopped up on goofballs from time to time, that’s cool. But if your goofball dealer shortchanges you or gives you bag of bad goofballs, don’t go crying about it to 911, because they don’t care. Remember, there’s not a better business bureau for goofballs. Read on to see the dumbest 911 calls over drugs that have ever happened.It’s a well known fact that if you do too many goofballs you can turn into someone who maybe isn’t the sharpest cookie in the tool shed. You need no further evidence of this than this list of people that called 911 demanding refunds or complaining about drug deals gone wrong. If you ever end up making a dumb 911 call, don’t worry, in most states it’s only a misdemeanor to misuse an emergency line. Don't mention us, though, we steer clear of all goofballs, especially the kind of who call the police to report stolen drugs or disreputable dealers.
Too Stoned? Maybe Don't Call the Police
A 22-year-old man in Austintown, Ohio got a little too stoned for his own good. The over-indulger called police claiming that he was "too high" from smoking marijuana. When cops got to his house, they found him moaning in the fetal position, surrounded by Doritos, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish, and Chips Ahoy cookies (of course). He told them he couldn't feel his hands, probably from smoking all the pot in the pipe and joints the police found around the house and in his car. Despite the emergency call, the man refused medial treatment. Here's hoping the Dorito-therapy finally kicked in.Source: The Vindicator
She Broke My Heart and Ran Off With My Cocaine
If someone steals your cocaine, they're probably not your friend. If your wife steals your cocaine, it was probably never meant to be. A romantic at heart, Robert Collins called 911 in Ohio to complain that his wife took off with his powder. He made the call despite that fact that, at the time, there was already an active warrant for his arrest. By the time police showed up, he'd cottoned to his mistake and refused to tell the cops why he called in the first place. Don't worry, they figured it out.
Satisfaction Not Guranteed
We've all been given the wrong change before. Dexter Price's dealer refused to give him the proper change after Price paid $60 for just $20 worth of crack. Luckily, Price did the sensible thing: smoked all the crack he had and called in a complaint at 4:30 in the morning. For some reason, Price initially demanded that police send over a canine unit. It's unclear whether any police dogs were present when he was arrested for disorderly conduct.
Don't Do Meth, Kids!
Kaleb and Shannon Mickely called 911 in May of 2015 to report a an intruder breaking into their house. When Eagle County Sheriff’s deputies arrived, they heard gunshots coming from inside the home. The authorities didn't find the imaginary intruder the Mickelys were shooting at, but they did find ALL the meth. Husband and wife were arrested on several charges including felony drug possession, reckless endangerment, and child abuse.
