July 11, 2012

A 64-year-old man who called 911 to report he had just killed a man who was holding a gun to his head ended up being arrested by Oak Creek police for drunken driving.

According to the Oak Creek police report:

Police received a 911 call at 2:50 a.m. July 3 from a man who stated Al Capone's son was holding a gun to his head in his car at the Villa Vista Motel, 8060 S. 27th St. While officers were responding to the call, the man told dispatchers that he was able to kill his attacker by breaking his neck.

Officers arrived at the motel and found the caller sitting in the driver's seat of his vehicle with his keys in the ignition. No one else was inside the car.

When asked about the gun and the alleged attacker, the man told police he must have just strangled his assailant, not killed him, because he walked out of the car with the gun.

The man was arrested for drunken driving and cited for misuse of 911.
