A Volusia County teen who deputies say was high on synthetic marijuana was arrested for misuse of the 911 after he called authorities twice to report his dream.
According to Volusia County deputies, 18-year-old Mark Welch called 911 to report that his dreams were happening in reality and that his parents didn't believe him.
In the first 911 call, Welch tells the dispatcher, “everything that happened today is actually in my dream, and I want to prove it to everybody.”
The dispatcher then asks, what Welch dreamed about, to which Welch replies, "it’s all on paper. I wrote it down.”
A deputy was dispatched to Welch's Orange City house at around 7:30 p.m. on Sunday and found Welch confused from the synthetic marijuana but not in need of medical attention, according to a release.
The deputy then told Welch not to call 911 unless he had an emergency. But about 40 minutes after the first call, Welch went to a neighbor’s house and called 911 again, saying he was still trying to prove something to his family about his dream., according to the report.
In the second 911 call, Welch said, "The officer told me not to call back. And he said if I called back, then ya’ll were going to take me to court. So I’m calling back."
The dispatcher asked Welch if he wanted to go to jail and Welch responded “I have to prove something to my family. So can you send an officer back?”
When asked if there was an emergency, Welch said there wasn’t and hung up.
The same deputy who had responded to the first call arrived at Welch's house and arrested him for misuse of the 911 system, a first-degree misdemeanor, and booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail in Daytona Beach on $500 bond.
