LINDEN – A 36-year-old Edison man who is accused of repeatedly calling 9-1-1 to request a taxi cab to take him home instead got a ride to Linden’s municipal jail, according to a Star-Ledger report.
Robert Nedeski had originally hailed a taxi and got in a dispute with its driver over the payment of the fare. After getting out of the cab at an East Edgar Road gas station, Nedeski allegedly made the first of “numerous” 9-1-1 calls demanding dispatchers send him a taxi at about 3 a.m., according to the report.
Responding officers asked him to stop making the calls, but he allegedly declined and cursed at the officers. Nedeski was arrested on a disorderly persons charge and for making a false 9-1-1 call, according to the report. He was being held in lieu of $1,000 bail pending a court date.
