Fla. man arrested after pocket-dialing 911
Tow truck driver talked about selling drugs, dispatchers listened in
A conversation with two passengers landed an Orange City tow truck driver in jail after his cell phone pocket-dialed 911 and dispatchers listened in.
Authorities say 19-year-old Matthew Dollarhide was surprised when a Volusia County Sheriff's deputy pulled him over on Tuesday and asked why they were talking about selling drugs.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports deputies were alerted at 9:42 p.m. Tuesday and sent to a location where dispatchers said the phone signal was coming from. From the conversation, dispatchers learned that they were driving a tow truck and heard the name Harry. Deputies pulled over a Harry's Towing truck moments later.
Deputies found a crack pipe on Dollarhide. He was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. He told police the pipe belonged to his father.
