Police say Ohio man repeatedly called 911 when drunk


CINCINNATI (AP) — A suburban Cincinnati man has been arrested after police said he kept calling 911 every time he got drunk.

Hamilton County court records show that 27-year-old Richard Hughes was charged March 24 with making false alarms. Police say he had been warned verbally three times and was given a written warning one day before he was arrested after calling 911 again and requesting a life squad.

Police say the behavior has been going on for months, and that he is abusing emergency services. Police says the Colerain Township man has been evaluated repeatedly and told each time there is no medical issue.

Hughes has pleaded not guilty and remained jailed Sunday with $30,000 bond. A message was left for his attorney. His next court date is April 6.
