A homeless man who sneaked into a Beaverton hot tub, then called 9-1-1 to ask for towels, hot chocolate and a hug got cold comfort from police instead.
Mark Eskelsen called emergency dispatchers from his cell phone about 7:10 a.m. Sunday, identified himself as “the sheriff of Washington County,” and asked for medical help.
“I just need a hug and a warm cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows in it,” he told the dispatcher.
We swear this sounds like Jeff Spicoli.
Oh, did we mention there is a recording of this greatness?
Mark just needs a couple of towels and he hates to burn all his cellphone minutes.
