    Default Man Arrested for Calling 911 While Drunk: Why? iPhone Broke.

    Michael Alan Skopec, 48, was arrested Wednesday for calling 911 to complain about his broken iPhone five times.

    Sometimes when you're drunk, reality fades away. Do you remember what 911 is used for? Oh yeah! iPhone repair! Michael Alan Skopec, 48, was charged with obstructing or resisting a police officer; this is a misdemeanor. He called 911 five times to complain that his iPhone had broke. Police traced the call to his home. Skopec is currently in police custody after being arrested in his home at 1 A.M. Wednesday. After the police came to his home, he refused to cooperate with their orders and only made things worse. Calling 911 for a non-legitimate reason is punishable enough. Resisting orders just adds frosting to the cake. Skopec is due for a court trial on November 18 to face these embarrassing charges.

    What exactly was going through Skopec's mind? I'm going to call 911 to complain about my broken iPhone. It seems a little funky.... Next thing you know he will call the fire department when his freezer isn't keeping steak cool enough, or call a hospital when he gets over a common cold.

    Remember that Apple is preloaded into your contacts on your iPhone. You can call them for AppleCare!

    The things people do when they're intoxicated. I say avoid alcohol if you're going to be someone like Skopec. Plugging 911 lines with junk calls is not an emergency and makes the job harder on police who have to filter real problems from fake ones. It's punishable by law. So let's not get overly intoxicated and break our iPhones shall we?

    Doesn't look like US police have a sense of humour. In the UK you'd get a telling off by the police, and that's about it

    That's what would have probably happened if it was the first time but he made it worse by not cooperating.

    Well with AT&T the "repair" hotline is 611. I always though it should be illegal to use numbers too close to 911

    611 it's not close to 911
    I will say 910 it's too close

    Let those who have never done anything stupid while drunk cast the first stone....
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    Not to be too much of a spoiled sport, but if you're drunk and your phone is broken, chances are you can't get to your preloaded contacts. Although, 800-my-apple and 800-sos-appl aren't hard to remember. That last one, actually works, it's an old number that apple has used since at least my first Mac, a Performa 6200. There's your vintage Mac trivia fact of the day.
