IMMOKALEE, Fla., Jan. 21 (UPI) -- Authorities said a south Florida man was arrested for allegedly making 10 calls to 911 to ask for rides to Mexico and other places.

The Collier County Sheriff's Office said Alvaro Francisco, 26, of Immokalee, first called 911 at 8:16 p.m. Saturday and made his final call at 12:45 a.m. Sunday, the Naples (Fla.) Daily News reported Monday.

Deputies said Francisco asked for rides to Mexico, his friend's house and his boss' house. The man was advised during each call that his requests did not qualify as emergencies.

Francisco, who deputies said smelled of alcohol, was arrested shortly after his final call on a misdemeanor charge of misuse of 911.
