Man is accused of making threats

Note to self: If you ever get really angry and decide to call 911 and say you're going to kill cops, don't do it from your home phone. And especially don't do it three times in one night. According to an arrest report, William Garcia, 25, of Wesley Chapel was upset early Saturday morning about a relative who was in a car accident. The report does not say how that emotion translated to anger at law enforcement officers. But Garcia was cross, the report said, and called 911 three times and cursed at dispatchers. "I will kill a cop and every cop that dies deserves it," he told an operator, according to the report. Deputies showed up at Garcia's house and arrested him on charges of making a false 911 call and threatening a public servant. He was released from the Land O'Lakes jail on Saturday.
