DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Delray Beach man was jailed early Friday morning after police say he called 911 repeatedly — to complain about the police.
Colin Melcher, according to Delray Beach police, was in a domestic dispute with a woman that required officers to respond to his home in the 1900 block of Linton Lake Drive. They did, and Melcher was allegedly unhappy with the result of their work.
Wrote an officer, “After officers left, Melcher continued to call 911 and was advised by dispatch if he did not stop, he would be arrested. He continued to call 911 and stated he did not care that he was going to be arrested. Melcher called 911 at 2302 hours, 2305 hours, 2309 hours, again at 2309 hours, and 2316 hours.”
Police returned to his home and placed Melcher under arrest. The charge: “false 911 calls.”
He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail at 1:28 Friday morning and released just after 6 a.m. on his own recognizance. He’s scheduled to be back in court in November.
