Jason Clarke, of New Street, Pilsley, made the call for what police have described as a ‘non-urgent matter’ in the early hours of Thursday 8 October.

While on the phone to the emergency call handler, he allegedly became abusive and swore at him several times.

Sgt Matthew Ladd, of the North Investigations Team, said: 

 

“Our colleagues in contact management perform a difficult role as the vital first point of contact for members of the public who need to report an emergency, as well as those who need to report a crime or issue that doesn’t require an immediate response.

“Behaviour which is abusive or offensive won’t be tolerated.”

The 49-year-old is due to appear before magistrates at Chesterfield Justice Centre in November.
