  • Man Called 911 To Avoid DUI Charge

    Police in Illinois said a passenger allegedly tried to distract officers with a 911 call about people with guns outside of a bar during a traffic stop.

    Orland Park police said they pulled over Brian Elitzer, 25, at about 3 a.m. Sunday on suspicion of driving under the influence and passenger Stephen Fratto, 24, called 911 during the traffic stop to report men with guns outside of Zante's in Orland Hills, the Chicago Southtownstar reported Tuesday.

    Police said the 911 dispatcher could hear the officer conducting the traffic stop during the call and became suspicious. Police accused Fratto of making a false 911 call to attempt to distract the officers and prevent Elitzer from being charged.

    However, Elitzer was cited for driving under the influence and Fratto was arrested and charged with false reporting of an offense.

    That's hilarious. Obstruction charge would work here in MD, too.

      nothing but a car full of idiots.
      He once brought a knife to a gun fight, just to even the odds.

      He once ran a marathon backwards, just to see what second place looked like.

        There are no stupid questions, but there sure are a lot of inquisitive idiots.

          You know that made perfect sense to him as he was probably rocked out of his mind. "Oh, dude, I got an idea!" LOL

              Sometimes, doing the right thing means p***ing off the bosses.

                I have talked to someone who claims he got away like this. The officers were forced to abandon the traffic stop to respond to the high priority call. The guy told me he keeps a prepaid cell phone in his car at all times now, just-in-case. Just what he said, but it seems reasonably possible.

                  I'm thinking it would be entirely feasible to run with a felony Reckless Endangerment charge if the fake report is such that an Officer would respond lights and sirens.
