An Evansville man was arrested and booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail after police say he called 911 multiple times for non-emergencies.
The Evansville Police Department says 61-year-old Daniel Schroeder was arrested and charged with Unlawful Use of 911 after calling the emergency line multiple times and telling dispatchers that he was "tired" and "burnt out."
In a series of 911 calls he can be heard responding to the dispatcher saying, "Ma'am, this is Daniel Schroeder. I just got out of jail yesterday and this idiot won't obey my rules."
He also said, "I'm tired of this dog barking all the time." Dispatch can be heard responding asking if there was something they can do to help Schroeder, to which he responds saying send EPD.
Police said that in total, Schroder called 911 four times throughout the evening.
EPD says officers went to Schroder's home and told him that it wasn't illegal for others to break the rules of the house.
After being arrested and charged with Unlawful Use of 911, EPD says Schroeder pleaded guilty to the crime.
According to court records, Schroeder was originally sentenced to six months in jail. After being ordered by a judge to not call 911 unless it was an emergency, Schroeder's sentencing was amended to 60 days in the county jail.
