A suburban West Palm Beach man is facing charges after he allegedly made calls to 911 while two sheriff’s deputies were standing in his presence.
Carlos Azpiazu Marrero, 37, was arrested Tuesday night on charges of misusing the 911 system and resisting arrest without violence. He was released from the Palm Beach County Jail on his own recognizance Wednesday.
According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were investigating a reported domestic disturbance at a home on Berkshire Drive when Azpiazu Marrero was seen sitting a in a chair outside the residence. A deputy attempted to speak to Azpiazu Marrero, but he was uncooperative.
When a second deputy approached, Azpiazu Marrero reportedly picked up his phone, called 911 and said he needed a sergeant to respond to his location. He had already called 911 and had no need to place a second call because a deputy was there trying to help him, the sheriff’s office said.
Azpiazu Marrero allegedly pulled away as a deputy tried to place him into custody. As the deputy tried to walk Azpiazu Marrero to a patrol car, Azpiazu Marrero yelled obscenities and tried to pull away and go back to his home, the sheriff’s office said.
