Don’t flip out

7:50 p.m. — 200 block of South Flagler Avenue, Flagler Beach

Misuse of 911. A Flagler Beach man was arrested for calling 911 multiple times about his missing flip phone, while using one of his extra cell phones.

The man did not lose his phone, but instead left it behind at a bar he was trespassed from the night before, according to the man’s arrest report. Before leaving the restaurant, he asked the police officer who issued the warning to get it for him, but refused to take the phone when the officer brought it out.

The officer kept the phone to return it the next day. Before the officer could, the man called 911 saying the officer had taken his flip phone and refused to return it. The man called 911 three times for thirty minutes about his phone, even claiming his life was in danger if he couldn’t call anyone because he did not have his flip phone, the report said.

The officer who had the flip phone arrested the man for misuse of 911. The man had three other phones on him when arrested. All four phones were turned over to booking deputies at the jail with the man’s arrest.
