Thibodaux Man Calls 911 To See If Police Are Looking For Him
I can't verify the following statement but I am guessing that Christian Palacios did not excel at the childhood game of Hide-and-seek. The reason I speculate that is because Palacios, a 24-year-old resident of Thibodaux recently reached out to see if any potential seekers were seeking him.
To be specific Palacios dialed 9-1-1 on July 16th to ask the dispatcher on duty if there were any warrants out for his arrest. The good news is there weren't. The bad news is that his call to 9-1-1 wasn't exactly an emergency so Palacios got a visit from the police anyway.
Before sending the Thibodaux Police to the address that Palacios had dialed from the dispatcher reportedly asked the man if he knew the difference between an emergency and a non-emergency call. Palacios said he did, that's when the dispatcher sent a police unit to his address.
For his inquiry, Palacios was booked on misdemeanor charges of misuse of the 9-1-1 emergency system.
