WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. — A Florida man is serving jail time — all because he wanted to check his Facebook page.
Problem was his wife wouldn't leave him alone. The Tampa Bay Times reports 57-year-old Doyle Hardwick gave his wife beer in hopes she would go to sleep.
But 54-year-old Julie Hardwick didn't want to go to bed. According to Pasco County arrest reports, she wanted to sit by her husband and look at his Facebook page. So he called 911.
The responding deputy says both Hardwicks were calm when he arrived.
Hardwick was arrested, pleaded no contest to misusing 911 and was sentenced to 60 days in jail. When he didn't show up, a warrant was issued. On Tuesday he turned himself in.
Authorities say Hardwick was on similar charges in 2010.
