The St. Augustine Police Department said George McMurrian, 57, called 911 twice Saturday from his room at the Budget Inn and asked for a ride to the liquor store, First Coast News reported Tuesday.
Officers visited McMurrian's room after the second call and told him he would be arrested if he continued to call 911 for non-emergencies.
Police said they returned to McMurrian's room after receiving a third call from the location and the caller hung up. Officers saw marijuana in his room and he was arrested on charges of misusing 911 and marijuana possession, police said.
