Man Calls 911 to Meet Lil Wayne
A Florida man was arrested for calling 911 requesting that he be taken to meet rapper Lil Wayne. Micheal Kruse was charged with making a false emergency call, which is a misdemeanor.
According to the St. John's Country Sheriff's office report, the 20-year-old dialed the emergency service and requested a police escort him to meet the rapper. Confused by the call, the operator asked "What is a little Wayne sir?" Kruse explained that Wayne was a rapper, mistakenly calling him Shawn Carter, which is Jay-Z's legal name. The operator continued to questions Kruse, "You want a police escort to take you to Miami?"
Kruse took his bizarre request to another level, stating that he was willing to be taken to Wayne by other means of transportation. "Or, do you have a helicopter?" The operator responded, "We don't just send helicopters up for rappers." Kruse then informed the operator that he was driving to Miami and wanted to know the fastest route.
The next day Kruse was questioned by police officers, and admitted to making the call. He also told the 911 operator that he was under the influence of an unidentified substance. He refused medical attention and was taken into custody.
