ORANGE CITY, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Florida tow truck driver landed in jail after his cell phone pocket-dialed 911 and dispatchers listened in on a conversation about the sale of drugs.
Deputies say 19-year-old Matthew Dollarhide was surprised when a Volusia County Sheriff's deputy pulled him over late Tuesday and asked him about his conversation with two passengers.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal ( http://bit.ly/WhbrCN) reports 911 dispatchers pinpointed the cell phone's location and sent deputies to investigate. From the conversation, dispatchers learned they were driving a tow truck.
Deputies said they found a crack pipe on Dollarhide. The Orange City man was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. He told police the pipe belonged to his father.
