ELKTON, Md. (AP) — Cecil County authorities say a man repeatedly called 911 for an ambulance when there was no emergency to get a ride to another town.
Devin Henson, 44, of Chesapeake City was arrested Friday and charged with false alarm, harassment and telephone misuse. He is being held on $4,000 bond.
The Cecil County Sheriff’s Office says Henson called 911 17 times this year faking an illness. After being taken to Union
Hospital in Elkton, officials say Henson would leave the facility before being treated and had been spotted in areas of Elkton where drugs could be purchased.
Authorities say on Friday, Henson allegedly called for an ambulance but when police accompanied paramedics, did not accept the ambulance ride. Officials say Henson called 911 a second time Friday and was arrested.
