Photo: Luis Perez-Perdago Calls 911 Multple Times Claiming Honduran Gang Trying to Kill Him
On June 23, police in Fort Pierce, Florida received multiple 911 calls from a man claiming Honduran gangsters were trying to kill him.
A police report states, a man called 911 numerous times stating there had been a murder. “All phone calls were unfounded and [found] to be false calls to 911 communications,” the report states. When police arrived in the area indetified from the calls, they found Luis Perez-Perdago, 27, hiding in bushes near a vacant home.
The home was familiar to police, as it has a history of shooting activity.
When questioned, Perez-Perdago said he was in the area visiting friends. However, when asked to give his friends’ names and address, he could not. In fact, police say he told them he could not remember his own name.
As he spoke with police, he grew angry, taking off his sweatshirt and making a fist while yelling at officers.
He was then handcuffed, put in the back of a police cruiser, and police took his phone. They asked a 911 operator to call the number that had called them numerous times that day. Immediately, Perez-Perdago’s cell phone rang.
Because Perez-Perdago did not give his name, he was arrested and taken into custody under John Doe.
He was charged loitering or prowling, public order crimes and/or misuse of wireless 911 system, resisting an officer and/or interfering with law enforcement without violence.
