Cops: Man called 911 to ask for a ride

An Atlanta man is accused of calling 911 five times to ask police for a ride home.

Instead, he got a ride to the Cobb County jail.

Reshonte Rodrecus Ross remained Monday night in jail, where he was being held on $1,000 bond more than a week after his arrest, booking records show.

At 2:30 a.m. Jan. 26, Ross allegedly called 911 repeatedly, according to an arrest warrant obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“Said accused wanted police to give him a ride but was informed several times that police would not respond for such requests,” the warrant states.

On the fifth call, Ross had a different reason for needing help, according to the warrant. He allegedly claimed he was having a medical emergency.

“An ambulance, ambulance supervisor, fire truck, and two police units responded to the scene in response to said accused’s medical claim,” the warrant states. “Said accused then informed affiant that he did not have a medical complaint but just wanted a ride to Atlanta.”

Ross was arrested by a Marietta police officer and charged with unlawful conduct during a 911 call.
