A Golden Gate Estates man is accused of misusing 911 by requesting Collier deputies remove three wildlife officers from his property after he crashed into a palm tree.

Early Thursday, three officers with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission were driving down 39th Street Southwest when they saw a pickup hit a palm tree head on, according to an arrest report. The officers followed the truck to a home and encountered a group who was "extremely drunk and aggressive toward the officers," reports said.

Deputies said John Edward Krimmel Jr. called 911 and asked dispatchers to trespass the officers from his property. Dispatchers told Krimmel his problem did not qualify as an emergency, reports said.

When deputies responded to the scene, Krimmel refused to follow their orders and attempted to pull away, according to the report.

Krimmel, 36, of the 3800 block of 31st Avenue Southwest, faces misdemeanor charges of misuse of 911 and resisting an officer without violence.
