Florida Man Calls 911 Repeatedly To Brag About His Big Muscles And Hit On The Dispatcher

by 5 years ago

If you’re going to drunk dial a 911 operator you might as well do it from your tent full of beer at a camping ground somewhere in Florida, right? Like, if you were to create a ‘Top 10 List Of Places To Drunk Dial A 911 Operator And Brag About Your Big Muscles’ surely the campgrounds of Florida would make up at least half of that list, right? The other locations on the list might include Deno’s Wonder Wheel (ferris wheel) at Coney Island, or that famous haunted clown motel in Nevada. But that’s all hypothetical, what we know for sure is a man from Leesburg, Florida called 911 repeatedly to hit on the dispatcher and brag about his big muscles. When police tracked him down they found him inside a tent in Lake Griffin State Park with open beer containers. These are the facts.

ClickOrlando has the quintessentially ‘WTFlorida‘ story:

A man was arrested Wednesday after police said he made several 911 calls in which he hit on a dispatcher and bragged about his big muscles.
Police said the man told the dispatcher about his big muscles before asking if she was single.
The dispatcher disconnected the call and the man called back two more times, again, asking if she was single.
After police tracked down that the calls were coming from Lake Griffin State Park, an officer went there and found the campsite, but no one was there.
That officer later learned the name tied to the phone making the calls was Edward Garcia. The officer went back to the camp site and found the occupant’s name was Eduardo Garcia.
The officer tracked Garcia down and found him with an open beer can where he was lying, along with other cold beers in the tent, according to police.
The officer said when he called the number the 911 calls came from the phone on the floor next to Garcia began to ring.
Police took Garcia, 44, into custody and said while he was being walked to the patrol car he told the officer he wanted to head butt him and kill him.

Talk about going from 0 to 60 in a heartbeat?! One minute this dude’s sitting in his tent thinking he might knock the boots later with a single woman who has a steady job, the next minute he’s in the back of a cop car threatening to kill officers of the law. The thing I’m most confused about is, since this is Florida, how was there now ‘flakka‘ involved?

Perhaps the Sunshine State is losing its edge? Also, does that look like the face of a man who has ‘huge muscles’?
