Tow Truck Driver Pocket-Dials 911 While Talking About Drugs

ORANGE CITY, Fla. (January 31, 2013)—A tow truck driver in Florida was busted after his cell phone pocket-dialed 911 and dispatchers listened in on a conversation about the sale of drugs.

Deputies say Matthew Dollarhide, 19, was surprised when a Volusia County Sheriff's deputy pulled him over late Tuesday and asked him about his conversation with two passengers.

Dispatchers pinpointed the cell phone's location and sent deputies to investigate.

From the conversation, dispatchers learned the three were in a tow truck.

Deputies said they recovered a crack pipe.

The Orange City man was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

He told police the pipe belonged to his father.
