Police: Drunkenness, boredom lead man to call 911 100 times; authorities respond with arrest

Authorities say a Michigan man confessed he was drunk and bored when he called 911 more than 100 times in the span of about a month.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1v5YhGA ) the 25-year-old from the Grand Traverse County community of Kingsley in northern Michigan was arrested Thursday evening at his mobile home. Sheriff's deputies say they found about a half-dozen phones used to call 911 since January and a hand-held police scanner.

Capt. Randy Fewless says the man didn't say anything until his last call, but started "upping the ante" by "laboring his breathing" in successive calls when he police didn't come to his home.

On the Thursday call, investigators say the man said he'd been hurt and needed help.
