Alvaro Francisco, a 26-year-old Immokalee man was jailed Sunday after he allegedly called 911 numerous times to ask for a ride to Mexico and other places.
According to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, Francisco called 911 ten times between Saturday at 8:16 p.m. and Sunday at 12:45 a.m.
Each time, Francisco asked the operator if he could have a ride to his friend’s house, his boss’s house, and even to Mexico. He was told that those requests were not considered an emergency.
Investigators say after the 10th call, officers were dispatched to Francisco’s residence.
When they arrived on the scene, they noted that he smelled of alcohol and appeared intoxicated. He was apprehended at his home without incident.
Francisco was booked into jail and charged with misuse of 911, a misdemeanor.
