A 45-year-old Fort Myers, Florida, man was arrested in November 2014 after calling 911 three times to ask the dispatcher if she was interested in a date. During one of those calls, he reportedly asked whether she was "into handcuffs."

A Utah man who found himself stuck in a boiler room while hiding from police ended up having to reach out to authorities for help, reports The Associated Press.

Shane Paul Owen, 46, was wanted for a string of burglaries and was pursued by police Monday when he found himself running into a church to avoid arrest.

More than six hours after Owen was accidentally locked in a church’s boiler room, he dialed 911 requesting to be rescued. A SWAT team held a standoff outside the church until Owens called.
