911 caller hits on dispatcher, brags about muscles, police say
Eduardo Garcia, 44, charged with misuse of 911 system
LEESBURG, Fla. – A man was arrested Wednesday after police said he made several 911 calls in which he hit on a dispatcher and bragged about his big muscles.
Police said the man told the dispatcher about his big muscles before asking if she was single.
The dispatcher disconnected the call and the man called back two more times, again, asking if she was single.
After police tracked down that the calls were coming from Lake Griffin State Park, an officer went there and found the campsite, but no one was there.
That officer later learned the name tied to the phone making the calls was Edward Garcia. The officer went back to the camp site and found the occupant's name was Eduardo Garcia.
The officer tracked Garcia down and found him with an open beer can where he was lying, along with other cold beers in the tent, according to police.
The officer said when he called the number the 911 calls came from the phone on the floor next to Garcia began to ring.
Police took Garcia, 44, into custody and said while he was being walked to the patrol car he told the officer he wanted to head butt him and kill him.
Police said while in the vehicle, Garcia spit through the cage onto the back of an officer's head and stated again that he would kill him. Garcia was then placed into a different vehicle with a closed cage and taken to Lake County Jail.
Garcia is charged with battery on a law enforcement officer and misuse of the 911 system. His bail was set at $2,500.
