WEST MELBOURNE, Florida – A 21-year-old man was arrested at the Westside Sports Bar in West Melbourne after making 911 calls for two consecutive nights.

Adam Henri Yuncker, of West Melbourne, was arrested on charges of disorderly intoxication and resisting police.

Police received a call Sunday morning at 1:25 a.m. from a man mumbling on the phone and making no sense.

Coincidentally, dispatch told the officers that the man was calling from the same number the night before when someone called 911 and was belligerent.

The officer made contact with two men at the Westside Sports Bar who said a man wearing all black near the church made the 911 calls.

When the officer asked the bar staff about the calls, the bartender pointed out one of the men, identified as Yuncker, and said he made the call to 911, according to the report.

The bartender further advised that Yuncker was also the same man who dialed 911 the night before, the report said.

Yuncker denied making the calls to 911.

However, an officer asked dispatch to call the number of the person who made the 911 calls, and Yuncker’s phone began to ring.

“I went back into the bar, and the bartender advised the male came in around 0000 hours and was harassing female customers as well as trying to fight several customers,” the officer said.

After disrupting the business, the bartender asked Yuncker to leave the bar.

West Melbourne police arrested Yuncker and transported to the Brevard County Jail.
