The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said Gary Alan Pockrandt, 51, called 911 three times in the early hours Wednesday from his St. Petersburg home, the Tampa Bay (Fla.) Times reported Thursday.

The report said deputies visited Pockrandt's home after the first two calls, in which the man complained his phone wasn't working, and they found no emergency.

Pockrandt was arrested after his third call, in which he lamented that his drug dealer was mad at him.

Deputies said Pockrandt smashed his phone on the ground before being arrested.

"This was a new phone," the arrest report states. "So it is believed it only dials 911 until it is activated which [Pockrandt] could not do in his intoxicated state of being."

Pockrandt was arrested on a misuse of 911 charge and jailed in lieu of $150 bail.
