Officer Tyler Pride charged Justin Christopher Presley of a 20th Street N.E. address after Presley reportedly called 911 and yelled at dispatchers.
“Dispatch advised that all they were getting (in terms of information) was Mr. Presley screaming his name and address into the phone,” noted Pride.
When Pride arrived on the scene, he located Presley sitting on a couch in the front yard.
Pride said he asked Presley what his emergency was and he stated he wanted the CD from his neighbor, according to the report. Pride also asked Presley if “that was the only reason he had contacted 911 and Presley reportedly answered ‘Yeah.’”
At that time, Presley was placed into custody and transported to the Bradley County Jail, where he was booked on the charge.
