Fla. man calls 911 for ride to bar

OLSDMAR, Fla. (WKOW) -- Authorities in Florida say a man called 911 claiming to have a broken nose in the hopes of catching a ride to a bar.

An arrest report says the 37-year-old suspect called the emergency line three times early Tuesday in Oldsmar, which is northwest of Tampa. He told the dispatcher he'd been beaten and claimed people were shooting at him.

In reality, though, authorities allege he was just looking for a ride to another bar.

The report also says the man kicked a sheriff's deputy in the knees and authorities were forced to use a taser to subdue him.
