Auburn Police were dispatched to a Carter Road residence Dec. 20 where a man had called and wanted a med unit.
Upon arrival officers met with a man, who in the past has reportedly called emergency services many times but had not been in an actual emergency.
The man claimed that he was feeling cold and that his eyes were rolling around.
Officers found the man on the sofa wrapped in a blanket and he claimed it was the worst he had ever felt.
Emergency Service units arrived and immediately checked the man’s vitals, which were all normal however the man claimed he was scared and wanted to be transported to the hospital.
In the past the man had called 911 several times in fear of having a seizure, but each time there was no emergency.
The battalion chief asked the man if he would go to the hospital and be admitted, the chief phoned Barrow regional Medical Center and spoke with staff that agreed to evaluate the man.
The chief told the complainant that if he agreed to be evaluated thoroughly then he would not press charges for abusing the 911 system.
The man agreed to be admitted and was driven to the hospital by his grandmother.
Later it was discovered by officers that the man did not admit himself to the hospital and actually left shortly after arriving.
Police plan on contacting the judge to have the remainder of the man’s probation be served in detention, which the complainant has asked to do in the past.
