PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – A Pinellas County man who called 911 to say President Joe Biden needed to go to jail has himself arrested, according to deputies.

The dispatcher told Philbeck his comment was unrelated to the emergency and that he was asked not to call 911 unless it was an emergency.
Soon after, Philbeck called 911 again and spoke to a call recipient about the “accuracy issue,” the report added.
Delegates were then dispatched to Philbeck’s home in Palm Harbor, where they asked the man why he was calling the non-emergency emergency line.
Philbeck told delegates, “El Chapo needs to be released” and “President Biden needs to be put in jail,” the arrest documents added.
Philbeck was arrested for using the wireless 911 system to report a non-emergency and non-nominal problem.
Delegates said Philbeck called 911 about three times in the one-hour period.
The bond is set at $150. The literature indicates that alcohol can have an effect.
