A man was arrested after making a bizarre call to 911, saying he got stuck in a hot tub at a hotel in Oregon. Beaverton police said Mark Eskelsen initially claimed to be a sheriff, but later made an unusual request.

Dispatcher: "How did you get in there?"

Eskelsen: "I got in here because the Beaverton police let me in because they're nice to me, that's why. They decided to leave me here overnight so here I am. I'm not really the Sheriff of Washington County."

Dispatcher: "You're sure you don't need any medical help at this point?"

Eskelsen: "I'm positive. I need a hug, and a warm cup of hot chocolate with some marshmallows would be pretty nice."

Police showed up and arrested Eskelsen on charges of criminal trespass and improper use of 911.
