Deputies: Oldsmar man wanted ride to a bar, so he called 911

OLDSMAR — A man is accused of calling 911 to get a ride to a bar and then kicking a sheriff's deputy in the knees.

Gregory J. Oras, 37, of 306 Bayview Blvd. in Oldsmar, made three 911 calls, including once when he left a bar on Oakwood Boulevard around 1 a.m. Tuesday, according to an arrest report. Oras claimed he had a broken nose, bleeding ears and people shooting at him.

Actually he just wanted a ride to Hennessy's, a bar in Oldsmar, authorities said.

Pinellas County sheriff's deputies arrested Oras for making false 911 calls. The deputies said they handcuffed Oras and placed him in the backseat but he refused to put his feet inside. Then, deputies say, Oras kicked one of the deputies in the knees.

The deputies used a taser to subdue Oras, the report said.

Oras, who faces a charge of making a false 911 call and battery of a law enforcement officer, was booked into Pinellas County Jail at 3:20 a.m.

His mug shot displayed elaborate facial tattos, and his arrest report listed several more, including the word "cannibalism" spelled out on his fingers; a dancing skeleton, a naked woman and a pumpkin head on his chest and stomach; a dragonfly, elephant and Batman symbol with breasts on his right arm; a snowman, naked pixies, a squirrel on a cross and a two-headed child on his left arm; and the word "doomed" on his back.
