Shouldn't dial 911 when drunk

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - September 30, 2013

That's the message from authorities in the Orlando area.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office reports busting a man who called the emergency number four times in two hours.

Deputies say Butler Armstrong started drinking after his first call to complain his girlfriend had stolen some stuff.

A local television station reports a boozing Armstrong called three more times, including a threat he would find his girlfriend and "chop her up" with a machete.

A deputy then visited Armstrong's home and arrested him.
