The man, 38-year-old John R. Pacella, wasn't kidding around either: As soon as police showed up his door, he began pushing and shoving officers. He was promptly arrested.
Pacella was later booked at DuPage County Jail with bail set at $100,000. He remains behind bars on charges of aggravated battery, resisting a police officer, and battery with intent to provoke or insult, TribLocal reported.
Police also told TribLocal that Pacella is a registered sex offender.
The website Homefacts.com, which compiles neighborhood safety data including lists of registered sex offenders, has a profile for a John Rocco Pacella of Willowbrook, Illinois, whose record includes "Indecent Solicitation of a Child," according to the site.
Emergency operators are no stranger to receiving odd requests from callers.
Last April, a man called 911 while he was being pulled over for a speeding ticket, pretending to report a shooting in the hopes officers would let him off the hook as they moved to respond to the fake incident.
Then, just a few weeks ago, a woman who said she received the wrong pills in an illegal prescription drug deal called police demanding that they track down the dealer and bring back the right goods.
