COLLIER COUNTY, FL – A Naples man is arrested for calling 911 three times and asking a dispatcher if she was interested on going on a date. Collier County deputies arrested Stephen Ramsey, 45, at his home on Florida Avenue for misuse of the 911 system. According to deputies, Ramsey asked the dispatcher how she felt about handcuffs. He then laughed before finally hanging up the phone. “When somebody misuses the system it does get very frustrating for everybody because we are here to serve the public and we have a hard time doing that when someone misuses the system,” Bill Rule, commander of communications at the Collier County Sheriff’s Office said.
I’m not gonna knock a drunk guy for thinking outside the box to get his kinky, drunk rocks off. Who hasn’t been there? Slumped on the couch, room spinning like a Tilt-A-Whirl, with your phone in your hand as you scroll through your contacts hoping anyone will reply. You start with the regulars but as the “It’s 4 AM you asshole” texts start rolling in, you extend the reach to girls you haven’t spoken to in forever. Ex-girlfriends, old co-workers, girls you haven’t talked to in forever, police dispatchers. It’s all fair game. And I’ll tell you what, if this gal wasn’t at least a little interested then she wouldn’t spend 7 minutes on the phone now would she? I don’t talk on the phone for 7 minutes a month, let alone a single call. So you may laugh at him and say it didn’t work, but I like happy endings and I’m going to assume that she sent the cops to get Drunk Steve so she could jump his bones.
