Man pocket-dials 9-1-1 on his handset, talks drugs and is busted

As it turns out, Young Mr. Dollarhide had stuffed his cellphone in his pocket and pocket-dialed 9-1-1 before discussing a drug transaction with this passenger. Besides hearing the conversation about selling drugs, the dispatcher heard that the call was coming from a tow truck and heard the name Harry. Dispatch put out a call at 9:42am with the location that the call originated from, and a truck with the name "Harry's Towing" was quickly pulled over.
Deputies found a crack pipe on Mr. Dollarhide and he was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. There is no word if the phone earned a reward for passing along information that led to the arrest.

Nowhere in the article does it say the man had an iPhone. In fact, it's hard to pocket dial a number on a touchscreen phone.

REMEMBER! that iPhone is can do smell test. Now, this iPhone can smell or can hear you conversation about something then it's automatically dail 911 to Sheriff and come to visit you. Theres you go your privacy already in the hand of government and later on, this thing does have to dail 911 but the cop will showed up at your front door.

Bull! This is happening way to often now, everyone that pocket dials 911 by accident seem to have been committing a crime at the time also so I say bull. Maybe government agents snooping in on smartphone owners if there's crime happening they remote dial the cops from their phones for a location fix.
