A 21-year-old man was arrested Tuesday and accused of making 292 false calls to 911 since July 1.
Escambia deputies arrested Cheveon Alonzo Ford after a 911 call was made about 10 a.m. from a cell phone, the Sheriff's Office said.
Ford told deputies he made the calls because he didn't have any minutes on his phone and "911 is a free call," the Sheriff's Office said in a news release.
Global Positioning System coordinates were used to track the phone. Deputies arrested Ford at a home on Kelso Road.
