Hallucinating man harasses dispatch in Forsyth County



CUMMING, Ga. — A man repeatedly called 911 after he was told to stop calling, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s report.

At about 1:45 a.m. Feb. 2, a man called 911 and said there was a man standing in the street staring at him.

Deputies said he ended up cancelling this call when he realized it was a bush he was looking at.

Then, at about 4:20 a.m., he called again and said there were two men in his front yard. He said one ran off, but the other was still sitting in his driveway.

Deputies went to his home and saw nothing out of the ordinary in the yard, driveway or surrounding area to suggest anyone had been out there.

Deputies said the man appeared to be heavily intoxicated and was drinking an alcoholic beverage while he spoke with them.

The man stumbled back into his home when deputies left.

At about 5:30 a.m., the man called dispatch again and reported a similar incident. Deputies told the man to not call 911 again for something they had already checked out. They gave the man the non-emergency phone number if he needed to call again.

The man said he understood that he could be charged with a crime if he continued to interfere with dispatch’s ability to work.

He called twice at 6 a.m. and again at 6:50 a.m. and said the two men were back.

Deputies secured a warrant for him for, because he continued to interfere.
