Man calls 911, complains about emergency responders
Crime, Weird

New Port Richey, Florida -- A man who didn't like the way police or fire rescue did their job when he called them apparently thought 911 was the number to call to complain.

Pasco County deputies originally responded to Benjamin Press' home in the 7400 block of Pulsar Street after a call about a battery incident. When they arrived, Press reportedly yelled at them, "You guys are f---ing late. You suck at your job so get the f--- off my property."

When deputies left, Press called 911 to complain about them. He then called Fire Rescue out who offered to take him to the hospital but he told them they would have to wait until he found a babysitter. When they told him they couldn't do that, he told them to "get the f--- out."

Finally, when he was about to be taken to the hospital and was strapped down to the gurney, he started to rip everything off and become violent with emergency responders. He claimed they weren't moving fast enough and was upset they had not left yet. 

At that point, he called 911 again to tell the operator he was in the back of the ambulance, that they hadn't left yet and he wanted to go to the hospital NOW.

In all, the entire process to get Press medical treatment took five hours.

Press, was arrested at Trinity Hospital and charged with Battery on a Law Enforcement Office--after he smacked a deputy's arm who tried to take his phone away--and Misuse of 911.
