A man with a Florida tattoo on his forehead called 911 twice for a ride home. He ended up behind bars, according to sources.
Police said 22-year-old Matthew Leatham, of Port Richey, was arrested early Sunday morning (January 31) for his alleged behavior on the phone. A court complaint claims Leatham “cursed at the call taker during the call.”
Officials said they were able to find the 22-year-old easily thanks to his forehead tattoo.
Leatham was charged with misuse of the 911 system and possession of marijuana. He was booked into the Pasco County Jail and later released on a $300 bond.
While Leatham brings a new meaning to the "Florida man" title, there have been other contenders. A naked man managed to steal a sheriff's patrol car and crash it within minutes of getting in the driver's seat. Another man wanted to give Okaloosa County deputies "something to do," so he allegedly set his truck on fire.
Then, there were two Florida men accused of grave robbing and targeting veterans' graves because "they have stronger spirits."
