Man Arrested For Trying To Initiate Phone Sex With 911 Operators

DOVER, Fla. (AP) — A Hillsborough County man is accused of calling 911 to ask for female deputies to respond to his home for sexual gratification.

Jail records show Joshua Basso was arrested Friday on seven counts of making false 911 calls. The 32-year-old from Dover is being held on $3,500 bail. An attorney is not listed for him.

A sheriff’s office report says Basso admitted to deputies that he made the seven calls to 911 between Wednesday and Friday. He was arrested without incident.

Jail records also show Basso was arrested in March 2011 on charges of stalking and lewd and lascivious behavior. The charges were later reduced to misdemeanors.
