Apparently, synthetic marijuana can make your dreams a reality. But for Florida teen Mark Welch, that reality was jail.
Welch, 18, called 911 two times on Sunday, trying to convince a dispatcher that everything in his dream was happening for real, according to a Volusia County Sheriff’s Office press release.
A dispatcher tried to make sense of Welch's babbling during the first call at around 7 p.m.:
Dispatcher: What’s happening?
Welch: Everything that happened today is actually in my dream, and I want to prove it to everybody.
Dispatcher: What did you dream about that’s happening?
Welch: It’s all on paper. I wrote it down.
Officers were sent to Welch's residence in Orange City, where the teen allegedly copped to smoking K2, a synthetic marijuana. A deputy told him not to call 911 again unless he wanted to be arrested, Central Florida News 13 reported. The man's parents hid their phone as a preventative measure, but Welch escaped to a neighbor's house and dialed 911 again 40 minutes later.
"The officer told me not to call back," Welch said, "and he said if I called back, then y'all were going to take me to court. So, I'm calling back."
So, the deputies came back. Welch was arrested for misuse of the 911 system, a first-degree misdemeanor, the Sun-Sentinel reported.
