Man Called 911 To Report Phone Problems

YORKVILLE, Ill.,(UPI) — An Illinois man who called 911 five times to complain about his iPhone not working properly was sentenced to a year of probation and a $1,000 fine.

Michael Skopec, 48, pleaded guilty to resisting a peace officer last week in Kendall County Court and was sentenced to probation and the fine for calling 911 five times Nov. 9, 2011, to complain about problems with his phone, (Chicago) Sun-Times Media reported Tuesday.

“Listen here,” Skopec told the dispatcher during one of his calls. “I can’t get through to my phone unless I dial 911. I’m ready to smash my phone into the concrete wall. Is that OK? No, it’s not OK. What the hell’s wrong with my phone?”

An officer was eventually dispatched to Skopec’s house and placed him under arrest.
