Man Calls Police Looking for Prostitutes – Not What ‘Police Escort’ Means

This is starting to become a pretty common trend among our “fail” arrests. Another man had contacted the police thinking prostitution was legal and ended up paying for it. In the last case a man called to complain to police officers about a prostitute’s poor service, but in this case it seems that the man simply wanted police to provide him with a prostitute. Maybe he was simply confused about what the tern “police’ escort” really meant.

Lonnie Michael Felts, a 42-year-old man from North Carolina, placed his first call of the day asking the local police for “a hooker and an escort to get boots,” the arrest report showed. After being told that he can get in trouble for misusing the police hot-line Felts ended up making two more calls throughout the day. And once again asking for an escort.

Eventually the police officers arrived at his home, with an escort. However, it wasn’t the type of escort he was hoping for and instead he was charged with accessing the 911 system for a purpose other than an emergency communication.
