Drunk man repeatedly called 911, police say

A suburban Cincinnati man has been arrested after police said he kept calling 911 every time he got drunk.

Hamilton County court records show that 27-year-old Richard Hughes was charged March 24 with making false alarms. Police said he had been warned verbally three times and was given a written warning one day before he was arrested after calling 911 again and requesting a life squad.

Police said the behavior had been going on for months, and that Hughes was abusing emergency services. Police said the Colerain Township man had been evaluated repeatedly and told each time there is no medical issue.

Hughes has pleaded not guilty and remained jailed Sunday with $30,000 bond. A message was left for his attorney. His next court date is April 6.
