Weird Crime Wednesday: Kool-Aid Man Gets the Munchies



St. Petersburg, Florida

On April 28, 2013, 34-year-old Jarvis Sutton decided that it was time to get a little bit of a return on his tax dollars by dialing 911. His emergency: A desperate need for Kool-Aid, burgers, and some weed....oh, and that they also be delivered to his home.

These items were of such importance to Jarvis that he dialed 911 approximately 80 times with his request. As you might imagine, the Pinellas County Police were not willing to help with or at all amused by Jarvis' repeated calls to emergency service for what most would consider a very unhealthy lunch or dinner.

Instead, they arrived at Jarvis' home and arrested him for misuse of a wireless 911 system. But even in defeat, it was Jarvis that would end up with the last laugh...and a meal. As police transported him to the Pinellas County Jail, Jarvis proceeded to chew on the foam attached to the metal caging in the back of the cruiser.

As of today, Jarvis Sutton remains locked up in jail with $150 bail standing between him and a his freedom.

...or he could just yell 'OH YEAH!' and bust through the wall.
