Homeless Hot Tub Intruder Calls 911 for Cocoa, Hug
A homeless man who sneaked into a Beaverton hot tub, then called 9-1-1 to ask for towels, hot chocolate and a hug got cold comfort from police instead.
Mark Eskelsen called emergency dispatchers from his cell phone about 7:10 a.m. Sunday, identified himself as "the sheriff of Washington County," and asked for medical help.
The dispatcher asked Eskelsen, who later admitted he wasn't the sheriff, what was wrong.
"Well, I've been yelling for about an hour and a half," Eskelsen said.

Awwww, he probably really does need a hug and a cup of hot chocolate! Who doesn't? (And maybe in his case a bit of counseling and medication? Hope he at least gets THOSE in jail!)
