An Illinois man who drunk dialed 911 on his home phone at least 5 times to complain about his iPhone not working was arrested this week:

Michael Alan Skopec, 48, dialed police emergency operators five times to beef about his malfunctioning Apple product, according to a Kendall County Sheriff’s Office report.

Cops traced the calls to Skopec’s home, where he was arrested around 1 AM yesterday when he “refused to comply with orders from deputies,” according to a sheriff’s spokesperson. Skopec, pictured in the above mug shot, was charged with obstructing or resisting a peace officer, a misdemeanor.

It is unclear what Skopec thought cops could do about his malfunctioning smartphone (though deputies did report that he was intoxicated when they arrived at his residence). Released on his own recognizance, Skopec is next due in court on November 18.


Guess the drunk dumb-ass really thought his iPhone malfunctioning was a pretty legitimate emergency! SMH…
