A bloke in the US has been arrested after repeatedly calling the emergency number 911 to complain that his iPhone wasn't working.

The 48-year-old from Illinois called the emergency services no less than five times to moan about his Jesus mobe, according to a Kendall County Sheriff's Office report cited here.

Eventually the cops showed up at his house to investigate the disorderly conduct and the man was subsequently arrested for resisting a police officer by "refusing to comply with orders from deputies", The Smoking Gun reported.

The officers have no idea what the man thought they could do about his poorly functioning iPhone, but they did report that he was intoxicated when they arrived at his house.

He has since been released and is due in court on 18 November. ®
