Winder Man Calls 911 to Report Being Invisible

Being invisible is not an emergency situation, according to Barrow County Emergency Services personnel.

A 28-year-old Winder man called 911 on Feb. 17 and said he was invisible.

Paramedics with Barrow County Emergency Services and a deputy with the Barrow County Sheriff's Office responded to a Chancey Circle residence following the 911 call.

According to an incident report, when the deputy arrived at the location he was advised by first responders that the caller did not need medical assistance and this was the fourth or fifth time paramedics had been to the residence in the past couple weeks.

The deputy was told the caller wanted a ride to the hospital "so he could get more medications" because he had taken all the medication he had received the night before. According to the incident report, the caller was told he needed to "dry up on the medication" and that he should not call 911 unless there was an emergency. If he did call 911 again and did not need help, he would be arrested.

According to Barrow County Detention Center records, the caller has prior arrests for criminal trespass and failure to appear.
