Man Fakes 911 Call to Get Air Conditioner Fixed

A Pennsylvania man hoped paramedics would be willing to fix his broken air conditioner, but he's been charged with obstructing emergency services, because his medical emergency turned out to be bogus. According to the Smoking Gun:

Travis Turner called 911 complaining of chest pains, then told medics he was fine but needed help fixing his broken air conditioning unit. The police say Turner has made a whopping 60 bogus calls to 911 over the last few years. What makes this one call a bit different is that a real emergency call came in while medics were out dealing with him. This puts the call in the  “endangered the welfare of a true medical patient,” category. Not very cool (pun intended).

Turner is now slated for a preliminary hearing in August on two misdemeanor charges.
