A Florida man faces charges of misusing 911 after allegedly making repeated calls asking law enforcement to arrest President Joe Biden.
Jacob Philbeck, 29, was arrested May 8 after making a series of calls to the Pinellas County 911 system demanding that Biden be arrested and former drug kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán be arrested. released, according to an arrest report obtained by The Smoking Gun.
Police said Philbeck was initially told “the information he was providing was not an emergency” and was warned not to make similar 911 calls.
Philbeck apparently didn’t get the message, as he called the cops again saying, once again, that “President Biden should be put in jail” and “El Chapo should be freed”.
Following the three 911 calls, the deputies decided to visit Philbeck around 6 a.m.
When they stopped, Philbeck was on the phone with 911, but that call was interrupted by his arrest.
Philbeck was taken to the county jail and convicted of abusing the 911 system. He was later released after posting $150 bond, according to WFLA TV, which noted that arrest documents indicated that alcohol could be involved.
