Scott Simon, a man from Florida, reportedly pocket dialed 911 while he was threatening to kill a man at a Waffle House in the early hours of May 5.

The Miami Herald reports the 911 tape of Simon's call has him telling Nicholas Walker he was going to follow him home and kill him. Walker was later shot and killed in his car.

“This is a first for me,” said Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Dani Moschella. “Criminals say crazy things all the time, but I’ve never seen anyone call a recorded line.”

When police arrived at the scene around 6:40 a.m. on May 5 they found Walker's vehicle crashed into a guard rail.

According to, Simon has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder.

Police are currently seeking two other suspects, the person who pulled the trigger and another man who was seen with Walker the morning before the shooting.
