A 19-year-old Florida man who twice called 911 because he “didn’t like how his mom was talking to him” was arrested early yesterday for misuse of the police emergency system.
Vincent Valvo was collared outside his Vero Beach home after a cop arrived there around 4:30 AM in response to the teenager’s second 911 call. Valvo, seen at right, complained about his mother in both calls, according to an Indian River County Sheriff’s Office report.
After his first 911 call, Valvo was “informed about the improper use of 911 and the penalty for doing so.” Following the second call, Valvo, who smelled of booze, was arrested for abuse of 911, a misdemeanor.
Valvo was released from jail yesterday afternoon after posting $500 bond. He is scheduled for a May 14 Circuit Court appearance.
The sheriff’s report does not specify exactly how Valvo’s mom was talking to him.
