According to police, a Mt. Pleasant, Tennessee man had no idea that he accidentally dialed 911 until they told him. Grant O’Connor, 25, was arrested  for drugs after he pocket-dialed 911 and dispatchers heard him talking about getting high and going to a drug dealer’s house.

The call came in to the Maury County 911 Center Friday evening, according to WKRN.

Dispatchers were able to trace the location of the call to Don Pepe’s Mexican Restaurant.  The suspect can be heard saying, “When it hits you dude,.it makes you feel like tiny little pins are in your body, but it’s like a good feeling, not a bad feeling. All these pleasure shivers.”

O’Connor and a female friend were having dinner when he butt dialed the police and inadvertently tipped off the authorities.

By the time officers arrived on the scene, O’Connor and his female friend were pulling out of the restaurant parking lot.  When Police noticed her car had a tag light out, they stopped the vehicle and found a small bag of marijuana and drug paraphernalia underneath the passenger seat where O’Connor was sitting.

The woman was not arrested but O’Connor was charged with simple possession and possession of drug paraphernalia and later released on bond.

Dude, you’re not supposed to call the police if you’re doing drugs, man! He’s like, totally harshing my mellow.

    In my day we had to walk 10 miles uphill both ways to get to our dealer and we didn’t have none of that fancy pinprick weed.

      And, butt dialing meant something completely different.

    He was probably twerking when he got an extra nickel bag on the deal.

    He must have an automatic dialer for emergency help. At the bottom of his phone.

    To recap, Tennessee, white, dumber than a post and after he completes his rehab will become a crusading right wing politician against 4th Amendment intrusions (other amendments to follow). Future governor and Republican Presidential candidate.
