Black man butt-dials 911 while discussing murder plans
African-American Scott Simon unintentionally dialed 911 while still frothing with rage over a late-night dispute at a Waffle House in Florida. In the recording, Simon is heard saying that he intends to follow the man he was arguing with to his house and shoot him. That man, Nicholas Walker, was indeed shot and killed mere minutes later, while he was pulling his car onto I-95. Simon has been arrested over the May 5, 2013 incident, and while police don't think that he actually killed Walker, he's been charged with first-degree murder because they believe that he orchestrated the hit. "This is a first for me," a police spokesman said. "Criminals say crazy things all the time, but I've never seen anyone call a recorded line."
