Repeat 911 Calls Lead to Texas Man's Arrest

A man is arrested after police say he made repeated 911 calls in which he used profanity toward dispatchers and threatened the life of an officer.


San Antonio police have arrested a man who they said used profanity toward dispatchers and threatened the life of an officer during 911 calls.

According to an arrest affidavit, dispatchers on Wednesday recorded five calls over 1 1/2 hours from Robert Phillips, 29. During some of the calls, Phillips threatened a police officer, saying he would "blow his head off" if he showed up at his home.

The affidavit stated that the officer Phillips was threatening had gone to the suspect's home earlier that day for a different call, and that Phillips was unhappy with the way the officer handled it.

The affidavit stated that the same officer arrested Phillips at his home last summer after he reportedly placed abusive 911 calls.

Phillips was charged with retaliation.
