Meet Matthew Kyle Leatham, a 22-year-old Florida Man (as that forehead tattoo attests)
Leatham was arrested around 4:45 AM Sunday after he twice “called 911 to find a ride home,” according to a court complaint which notes that the accused “cursed at the call taker during the call.”
Since the police emergency line does not double as a taxi dispatcher, Leatham was charged with misuse of the 911 system. He was also hit with a marijuana possession charge after a cop found some pot on him during a post-arrest search.
Leatham, who works as a cook at a Port Richey seafood restaurant, was released on his own recognizance last night from the Pasco County jail.
Leatham was cited last month for reckless driving following a crash that caused an estimated $8500 in damages, according to a court filing.
