Man calls cops 5 times to complain about broken Apple iPhone

Man calls cops 5 times to complain about broken Apple iPhone
If your smartphone started to fail you, would you call the police to complain? Of course not, but that is exactly what Michael Alan Skopec did last week. During the first call to the Kendall County Illinois Police, Skopec got a hold of the dispatcher and while slurring his words, said that his Apple iPhone was not working and that he knows it has something to do with Apple. The dispatcher calmly asked if there was an emergency and when he answers in the negative, she directs him to Apple.

During Skopec's second call, he picks up the pace by throwing out some choice curse words and says that he is so frustrated with his iPhone that he wants to break it. Three more calls are made, each one answered by the same dispatcher who is cool and calm. She even tries to help him troubleshoot the unit and asks if he has the instructions. Finally, the dispatcher tells him that if he presses "0" on his iPhone, perhaps he will get someone who can help him better. After the last call, the cops were sent to arrest Skopec and charged him with obstructing or resisting a peace officer, a misdemeanor.

Skopec's strange response to his broken Apple iPhone can probably be attributed to the consumption of some type of alcohol. In fact, in his condition, who knows if his iPhone was even broken to begin with.

Lol you're cold sir.. Funny but once Miz sees this he's going to get all kinds of angry.... Then again he probably won't be out of jail for atleast a few days :)

It\'s kind of hard to tell, however. My first thought was a converted Driod user. Pretty sure that\'s what it was.

Faceroll typing at its best. Or you have fingers too fat for your IPhones small screen. Edit that a little so we can understand.

you mean by calling 911 the number used in real life and death emergencies? he could have gotten Apple's number right there from his iPhone and if he was able to make a call with it then it must not have been a dire enough problem to just go through the proper channels. if you have a PHD then you should post things intelligently so people don't treat you like you're stupid.

Maybe when he tried to call Apple from his iPhone his call kept getting dropped?

Funny PhD you have...they usually type better :-)

"this man did nothing wrong." - I loled when I read that. From my view, breaking his own iphone is his first problem, over drinking is his second problem, and "No, I'm just not very smart" is his third problem. "One oh blah blah blah blah blah blah blah...uh ok? You understand that?" ...

You seem like the man arrested... So you can spend 3 grand on iPhones but still incapable of intelligently and logically solve his problem? You can get a PhD all you want, that still doesn't mean you're ignorant when it comes to technology. People with a PhD nowadays are still trying to discover the magical process of texting and a touch screen. What's a better company for you to use to discover the magical process of it than with Apple? I can see why you feel Apple is so great. It's new to you and you wish others could stoop to your level in the process of learning it.

If that's all you have in a successful life (to come home to a hot wife) then I feel sorry for you.

Moral of the story..... don\'t buy an iPhone if you want a phone that won\'t fail you.
