SUBURBAN RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. — A Pahokee man was arrested after police say he repeatedly called 911 to complain about getting ejected from a suburban Riviera Beach adult nightclub.
A Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Deputy responded to a 911 call in reference to the Scores nightclub in unincorporated Riviera Beach just after 3 a.m. on Saturday, February 28.
Once on the scene, the deputy made contact with 24-year-old Montrell Miller who was upset over being asked to leave the club by security.
The deputy informed Miller that the club has the right to refuse service to any patron and can ask patrons to leave at any time they felt obliged.
Miller decided to leave the club’s property and stand by the roadway.
Once he left the property, PBSO says Miller made 6 calls to the PBSO 911 emergency system asking for officers, as well as supervisors, to respond.
PBSO says Miller also made an allegation that there was a shooting at the club, causing PBSO to re-dispatch officers back out to the nightclub.
Deputies determined that the shooting call was not true and located Miller at a nearby gas station.
According to an arrest report, Miller told the deputy that he understood that it was not right to call 911 for a non-emergency, but he kept calling so he could voice his opinion.
Miller was placed under arrest and charged with knowingly, willfully and unlawfully misusing the 911 emergency system.
