We have another 911 genius on our hands. Mark Eskelsen, a homeless man in Oregon, called 911 from within the hot tub of a home in Portland requesting towels, hot chocolate and a hug. He was arrested for trespassing.
Apparently, Eskelsen phoned 911 from his cell phone and said he was the “the sheriff of Washington County.” He then proceeded to ask for medical help. Later, he admitted that he was not the sheriff but told the 911 operator he had been hollering for about 90 minutes.

Eskelsen made the call on Sunday morning stating that he had been sitting in the water for about 10 hours and that all of his his towels had gotten wet.
He said, “I just need a hug and a warm cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows in it.”
Authorities placed Eskelsen under arrest for investigation of second-degree criminal trespass and improper use of 911.
