EASTLAKE, Ohio - Calling 911 landed a northern Ohio man behind bars after police said he dialed the three-digit number repeatedly.
Eastlake police posted to the department’s Facebook page that on Wednesday, Aug. 1, Edward Marunowski, 47, of Ashtabula, called nearly 70 times within several hours, disrupting the dispatch center and emergency services.
Eastlake officers then enlisted the assistance of Ashtabula police, who served Marunowski with an arrest warrant at his home.
According to police, Marunowski resisted arrested and now faces charges in both Ashtabula and Eastlake.
Marunowski remains lodged at the Lake County Jail pending bond or arraignment.

The nation's tax agency has admitted to inappropriately scrutinizing smaller tea party organizations that applied for tax-exempt status. But the IRS largely maintained a hands-off policy with the much larger, big-budget organizations on the left and right that were most influential in the 2012 elections and are organized under a section of the tax code that allows them to hide their donors.
