by Tiffany Tarpley

WAUKESHA COUNTY--A Merton man is facing charges of possession of THC, disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia after calling 911 more than a dozen times.

At the beginning of the calls John Stilp, 64, requests to be transferred to Jefferson County dispatch to report an alleged attack.

Stilp:  "I want to talk to Jefferson County because I don't have their phone number."

Dispatcher:  "Well, I can get you their phone number.  Hold on one second, let me get you their phone number."

Stilp: "No, no I can't dial."

Dispatcher:  "Well, sir you dialed 911.  Sir why can't you dial Jefferson County's phone number?"

Stilp: "Cause I can't remember.  I don't have a pencil here."

Eventually the calls became more frequent, more demanding and at times strange.

Stilp: "Okay, your cops were just here okay."

Dispatcher: "Yep"

Stilp:  "Tell them everything is okay if they come back please bring me a (expletive) pizza, whatever they have cause I haven't eaten since they hauled me away four days ago."

In the recordings, Stilp also told dispatchers he was a US Marshal and attorney and threatened that the officers would lose their jobs if they didn't comply with his demands.

Waukesha County's Director of Emergency Preparedness, Gary Bell, said it's not up to dispatchers to judge a person but to make sure they get the help they need.

"Yes he was asking for pizza but if you lead into more of what he was talking about he was actually calling asking for some help," he said.  "This individual indicated at one point during his conversation that he had a shotgun which goes zero to 60 in a relatively quick manor of time."

According to the criminal complaint , officers found an empty prescription pill bottle, "a baggie of marijuana and a sliver pipe."  It also said there was a "half-empty bottle of tequila, and several full beer cans laying on the sofa in the living room."

At last check Stilp remains in jail.
