Indiana man called 911 over and over to say he was ‘tired’

Dispatch was tired of dealing with him.
According to records obtained by The Smoking Gun Friday, an Indiana man who called 911 repeatedly to say he was tired will spend two months in county prison.

According to the outlet's police report, Daniel Schroeder (61) was taken into custody Tuesday night. He was accused of making four calls that evening, all of which he claimed he was tired.

The calls were made by Schroeder the day after he pleaded guilty to early misuse of emergency systems. He also admitted to calling 911 to express his dissatisfaction with a relative for not following his rules.

He was sentenced to six months imprisonment for that offense. The Smoking Gun states that he will not call 911 unless there is an emergency.

He pleaded guilty Wednesday and was sentenced for 60 days in prison on the misdemeanor case. This will run concurrently to the amended sentence of 60 days in prison in the first case.

Although he seems to not know much about 911's origins, Schroeder isn't a stranger to the law.

Schroeder was arrested in May for possession, leaving the scene after a crash and operating a vehicle while under the influence. He was alleged to have driven drunk through a cemetery, nearly three times the legal limit, only to damage at least four headstones, WEHT reported at that time.
