Spring Hill man arrested after telling dispatcher his phone told him to call 911

SPRING HILL

911 call leads to jail

A Spring Hill man recently released on parole was back in jail Tuesday night after dialing 911 and telling a dispatcher "his phone told him to call," the Hernando County Sheriff's Office said. Deputies went to check on the welfare of Anthony Edington, 41, at his Shannon Avenue home and found him in a neighbor's driveway. He had alcohol on his breath and told deputies he "drank a few beers while he was socializing" at the neighbor's. Edington, on probation since Saturday, wasn't allowed to drink or be outside his house at that hour. He was arrested and taken to the Hernando County Detention Center. He was held Wednesday without bail.
