Dear A.S.S. Editor
A man, who was feeling a bit sad after drinking, dialed 999 and told the police hotline that he was going to be dead. It was a prank call, and pest controller Yeo Cheng Tee was jailed for five weeks for it.
He had admitted to calling the emergency number in May this year to annoy the emergency personnel at the other end of the line. Yeo had also said during the call that he was tired, and had no energy and had been cheated. He hung up before his location was established.
The call was traced to a pay phone at Boon Tong Road, but no one was around the pay phone when polie arrived. Investigations revealed that similar calls made by Yeo had been previously made. He was finally arrested at his home in Jalan Bukit Ho Swee.
