PASCO COUNTY, FL – A Florida man, literally, Florida man, was arrested when he was caught abusing the 9-1-1 service.   A  man with a very large tattoo of the state of Florida on his forehead was charged after making repeated calls to the Pasco 9-1-1 center.

Matthew Leatham, of New Port Richey, called 9-1-1 to request a ride home. Apparently, he thought the emergency service system could also be used for Uber.  Despite his obnoxious call where he repeatedly swore at the 9-1-1 officer, the Pasco County deputy arriving on the scene even offered Florida man a ride home earlier.

He refused. He was later caught with marijuana and booked
