PALM BAY, Fla. — A 911 pocket-dial landed a Palm Bay man in police custody.
The dispatcher heard someone talking about pills and pot over the open line. One person was arrested and police said he had marijuana in his vehicle.
"But right now, I ain't got nothing. But my guy gets here…. so… well, I got weed though," said the man. What the pocket dialer didn't know is that Palm Bay Police's policy is to make contact with all 911 callers.
