WINDER, Ga. (CBS Atlanta) — Police say a local man called 911 to report himself – as invisible.

According to an incident report posted on the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office website, authorities joined medical units at the Winder residence after receiving a puzzling distress call.

“I responded … in reference to a person saying he was invisible,” the report reads.

It was allegedly the fourth or fifth time medical units had responded to the residence. The caller, 28-year-old William Gasaway, did not need an ambulance.

“Battalion Chief Franklin … stated that William want[ed] a ride to the hospital so he could get more medications,” the report continued. “[The Chief said William] did not need any medical treatment – he needed to dry up on the medication.”

Gasaway was told by the police that, if he used the 911 service again for a non-emergency, he would be taken to jail.

According to the Barrow Patch, Gasaway has prior arrest records for criminal trespass and failure to appear.
