ST. AUGUSTINE, FL – It’s nice to get a compliment every now and then, and maybe that’s all one Florida man was looking for.
Police say they got a call from 44-year-old Eddie Garcia, who reportedly called to report a harassing telephone call he got. His emergency quickly took a romantic turn. He started hitting on the dispatcher, who hung up on him shortly after she realized he wasn’t calling for an actual emergency. But Eddie’s a man with a plan and called back not once, but twice. This time he tried enticing the dispatcher by telling her he had big muscles.
She wasn’t enticed, and instead, decide to send police to Garcia, who later arrested him. That’s how he became our Dumbass of the Day!
