Pablo A. Flores called 911 seven times Wednesday evening, threatening to “go to the (expletive) police department” and “pull out my Glock .40 and start busting caps,” according to Greenacres police.
Flores, 25, told police he was angry with an officer he spoke to earlier that day, but it wasn’t a Greenacres police officer, an arrest report states. He and a woman who was named but not arrested called 911 multiple times Wednesday threatening the dispatcher.
The woman was heard over the phone saying, “Some sheriff needs to do something about it before my boyfriend and his friend take it into their own hands.”
Flores, of Lake Worth, was heard in the background threatening to shoot officers, the report states.
“All I gotta say is send someone now before I pull out my Glock .40 and start busting caps,” he said to the dispatcher in the fourth 911 call, according to the arrest report.
Flores was unarmed when police nabbed him at Ed’s Food Store & Deli on Lake Worth Road west of Jog Road. When Greenacres police told him he was being arrested for threatening public officials, he said, “I said officers, not Greenacres police.”
Flores was taken to the Palm Beach County Jail on charges of misuse of 911 and corruption by threat of a public official. He was released on $3,000 bail Wednesday afternoon.
