Two intoxicated men were arrested early Saturday morning after one of them called 911 several times and taunted an emergency dispatcher, saying that police officers would not be able to find him.

Cody Lepur, 22, of Schleswig, was arrested for making a false report and public intoxication. Zachary Crawford, 22, of Carroll, was arrested for public intoxication.

Lepur is accused of calling 911 six times while he and Crawford were at Graham Park just after midnight. Lepur "yelled derogatory statements at the dispatcher" and said "the cops would never find him, before hanging up," according to court records.

Dispatchers are able to track the locations of cellphones that call 911.

When a police officer shined a light on the men in the park, the pair fled and were apprehended at the nearby parking lot of Taco John's.

Lepur's alleged blood-alcohol concentration was .129 percent, and Crawford's was .182 percent.
