DELAND, Fla. – A DeLand man, who police say called 911 multiple times to talk about random topics such as Hitler and Jews, was arrested and charged with misuse of the 911 system.
According to the police report, Michael Gilman, 28, called the emergency line five times in five hours on Saturday after he was asked not to call unless it was an emergency.
A DeLand police officer was then sent to a home on Becca Lane, where he heard Gilman still talking to the dispatcher "about Hitler and Jews," police said.
When the officer asked Gilman was he was doing, Gilman said that he was "...talking to your dispatcher, because I'm bored," according to the police report.
Gilman was taken to Volusia County jail.
