Assuming the worst:
He calls 9-1-1 to report a vehicle parked in his driveway, with a Hispanic man in the car. Caller tells 9-1-1 “he’s a criminal”. How does he know that? The man told him, in poor English, that he “doesn’t want the police to see him”. He called at shift change, so there’s no deputy available right then. 30 minutes later he’s on 9-1-1 again, mad as hell that there’s not a cop there yet about this ‘criminal’. He’s rude to the operator, (me) and also to Tulare PD dispatchers. Our unit and a Tulare PD Sargent arrive to check it out.
The gentleman was talking on his cellphone, “and didn’t want the police to see him”… on the phone while driving.
