COLUMBUS, Ind. (WTHR) - A man called 911 by mistake, but wound up going to jail anyway.

Bartholomew County Sheriff’s deputies got the call to the 300 block of Daugherty St. Friday night on a 911 investigation.

Aaron Allman, 48, of Columbus accidentally called 911. He told dispatchers that everything was fine and no one needed to respond. Deputies responded anyway and they were able to confirm that Allman had a warrant for his arrest.

Allman was taken to the Bartholomew County Jail on that warrant.

Sheriff Matt Myers posted on his Facebook page Saturday, "Thank you, Mr. Allman, for giving us a call to pick you up. Doesn't get any better then this. Lock your cell phone when not using."
