911 calls

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. – A man has been arrested for calling 911 twice in a day to ask for a ride because he was hungry.

Benjamin Dewer, 26, was charged early Wednesday with making false 911 calls, say police.

The police report notes Dewer was sitting on the sidewalk, drunk. When police drove by he asked them for a ride to a park and told them he was hungry. When police refused, Dewer walked away and called 911 a second time for a ride.

Dewer is now behind bars at the Palm Beach County on a $1000 bond. That’s one expensive lunch!

Dude people are going nuts. Why couldn’t he call pizza hut or chinese food.

But at least he’s getting fed.

Probably would have been easier and cheaper to refer him to one of the local homeless or social service agencies. We waste so much money putting people in jail because they need mental health care or social services. It’s pathetic.

You’re both absolutely right. It’s our money that’s paying for their jail time and if they don’t need to be there, then it’s a waste. Sometimes it’s hard to differentiate between a genuine crime and crime caused by health problems, but on this one it sure looks like the latter.
