Opelousas Man Arrested For Misusing 911
The St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office has arrested 63-year-old "Arlen" Deville after he called 911 eighteen times on Saturday.
Captain Megan Vizena says Deville kept asking for medical help, and then once the ambulance arrived he would cancel the service or refuse medical attention.
Vizena adds, "Due to Mr. Deville's aggressiveness towards the paramedics, a deputy was requested each time Mr. Deville requested medical attention."
Deville is being charged with 18 counts of criminal mischief and public intimidation.
