A Boca Raton man was arrested early Monday after calling 911 several times because his sister was yelling at him — and once to report she had fallen asleep, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
Sean Patrick Boyce, 38, slurred his speech and smelled like alcohol when deputies arrived at his home just before 1 a.m. He called 911 several times because his sister was “yelling at him through the door,” the arrest report says.
At one point, he called just to tell dispatchers that his sister had fallen asleep.
He was arrested on a charge of 911 misuse, a misdemeanor in Florida. He told officers it was “unfair” that he was being arrested because he just wanted his sister to stop yelling.
He was released from the Palm Beach County Jail a few hours later.
