Report: Man calls 911, makes cat complaint, ends up in jail

TAMPA — When Paul Brian Clutts, 46, called 911 to report that he hit his house with a car, sheriff's deputies rushed to the scene.

But when they got to his house at 5022 Landsman Ave., Clutts was gone, and deputies noticed no damage to the house.

Clutts soon showed up at a Sheriff's Office district office to tell deputies he called 911 because "his cat attacked him," and he wanted to join his girlfriend in jail, an arrest report states.

Then he told deputies "someone was going to shoot up the district," the report states.

Clutts was taken to the Hillsborough County jail on a charge of misusing the 911 system and was held in lieu of $500 bail — in a separate cell from his girlfriend.
