Having big muscles might be something to brag about, but not to a 911 operator.

Edward Garcia, 44, was arrested Wednesday evening after making what police said were several 911 calls in which he bragged about his "big muscles" while hitting on the dispatcher, according to Florida Today.

Fruitland Park police said the dispatcher disconnected Garcia's first call when he asked if she was single.

Garcia reportedly called back two more times to ask the dispatcher's current relationship status. He was disconnected both times, according to officials.

Police tracked the calls to a campsite at Lake Griffin State Park, but no one was there, according to

When the responding officer discovered the phone belong to Edward Garcia, he returned to the campsite which was registered to an "Eduardo Garcia."

The officer called the number connected to the 911 calls and it rang inside the suspect's tent.

Garcia was found lying in his tent with an open beer can surrounded by several other cold beers, reports.

Police then took Garcia into custody. While he was being taken to the patrol car, he allegedly told the arresting officer he wanted to head butt him and kill him.

Garcia is also accused of spitting on an officer while being taken to the Lake County Jail.

Garcia was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer and misuse of the 911 system. He remains behind bars in lieu of $2,500.

Jail records show Garcia was also arrested in January for assaulting a police officer.
