Plant City, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Some people hang their head in shame as they are carted off to jail. Others, however, demand their right to imprisonment and won't take no for an answer.
Peiter Vanliet, a 47 year old Plant City, Florida man called 911, insisting that they arrest him and take him to jail. The problem was, Vanvliet had not committed a crime and there were no outstanding warrants. Authorities shrugged his request off as just another idiot Floridian (as there are many).
Refusing to be deprived, Hillsborough County authorities say Vanvliet began repeatedly calling 911 from a pay phone on Monday, informing deputies there was a warrant for his arrest and that he was awaiting their arrival.
Hillsborough County Deputies double checked - Nope, still no warrant for this idiot's arrest.
Finally, after continued calls, Hillsborough County deputies could finally grant Vanvliet's wish. The DID arrest the jackass, because they finally had a reason to.
Vanvliet has been charged with misuse of the 911 system.
Happy now Vanvliet?
