Homeless Man Arrested After Repeatedly Calling 9-1-1

By  | 

BRYAN After six calls in about eight hours, Brazos County 9-1-1 dispatchers decided enough was enough.

55-year-old Jonathan Harrison is facing several charges after making repeated phone calls to 9-1-1. Between 6 o'clock Sunday evening and early Monday morning, Harrison made multiple calls asking someone to give him baby aspirin and a place to stay for the night.

An officer sent to check on him found two baggies of marijuana. The officer warned Harrison to stop calling unless it was an emergency, and went to get a warrant for the marijuana.

Harrison called twice more, telling dispatchers that things would be bad if he didn't get his weed back.

Harrison was arrested for abusing the 9-1-1 system and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is in jail under $2,335 bond.
