BEAVERTON, OR (WFLX) - Emergency dispatchers in Beaverton, Oregon get an unusual call. Police say Mark Eskelsen dialed 9-1-1 after getting stuck in a hot tub in Beaverton.
At first, he claimed to be the sheriff of a local county. He later admitted he wasn't the sheriff and said he just needed a hug, some hot cocoa and help getting out of the tub.
"I'm the sheriff of Washington County, and I've been in this hot tub here for ten and a half hours, and I cannot get anybody to stop and let me out," said Eskelsen to the dispatcher.
The dispatcher replied, "You're sure you don't need any medical help at this point?"
"I'm positive. I need a hug and a warm cup of hot chocolate with some marshmallows would be pretty nice, besides that, I don't think I need medical help," Eskelsen said.
Police showed up and arrested Eskelsen on charges of criminal trespass and improper use of 9-1-1.
