Guy Called 911 Pretending to Have Chest Pains to Get Help Fixing His Air Conditioner
Summer heat makes people do crazy, crazy things.
27-year-old Travis Turner of Indiana, Pennsylvania called 911 on Sunday afternoon, and said he was having chest pains. That's a pretty believable story, since Travis is 4-foot-11 and 380 pounds.
Paramedics rushed out to his apartment. When they got there, he told them he was fine, he actually just needed help fixing his air conditioner. They left to go to a real medical emergency at a Chinese restaurant nearby.
Then the police headed over to Travis's place and arrested him for obstructing emergency services and disorderly conduct. They say he's made at least sixty fake 911 calls over the past three years.
