NORWOOD, OH (FOX19) -

Norwood Police arrested a man Wednesday for calling 911 several times and tying up the system.

Clyde Lawson, 61, was arrested after the incident report stated he called at least 4 times complaining about being overcharged on a cab fare.

He was arrested around 2:30 a.m. in the 4000 block of Grove avenue.

“Lawson was heavily under the influence of alcohol,” stated court documents. 

Officers were at the home at the time of the original call when Lawson was complaining about the fare. The report said officers thought the situation was handled.

According to authorities, Lawson called two more times, but the calls had nothing to do with an emergency. He was advised to stop calling.

The incident report said he called another two times and began cursing and berating the 911 operators.

Court documents said on the last call, he reported seeing, “Iranian men running around the backyard.”

Officers responded and arrested him for misusing an emergency telecommunications system.
