Do Not Call 911 Five Times About Your Broken iPhone

911 emergency services are a very helpful community resource, but they have their limits. They cannot, for example, deliver you a pizza. Or transfer you to AppleCare when your iPhone doesn’t work. That didn’t stop a man in Illinois from doing the latter…and then getting arrested for it.

The man was reportedly intoxicated when police came to his home. He was released on his own recognizance, but no word on the current status of the iPhone.
