Authorities in Georgia have banned a man from calling 911 unless he's truly having an emergency.
Officials say the 62-year-old has called 911 more than 100 times in the past three years.
Police have since issued a warrant for William Baccus’ arrest.
The Cobb County fire chief says Baccus calls for things like getting him a glass of milk, retrieving his remote control or getting his cellphone from the other room.
Officials say the calls put other people facing real emergencies in unnecessary danger.
According to this arrest warrant, the fire department and police have warned Baccus not to call 911 unless it was an actual medical emergency.
