Tampa, Florida -- By law, cell phones are required to allow a person to dial 911, even if they are not paying for any service. 

Hillsborough County deputies say one man abused that privilege by calling 911 using an unregistered cell phone... more than one thousand times.

38-year-old Jason Michael Honaker was arrested and charged with seven felony counts of fals 911 calls, with more charges possible. Investigators say that since December 31, Honaker called the emergency number more than 1,200 times. Sometimes Honaker would allegedly ramble on, while other times he wouldn't speak at all.

The phone's GPS indicated the calls were being made in the area of Tampa East Boulevard and Massaro Boulevard. Deputies responded to the area several times, but were unable to find the suspect.

On Wednesday, undercover deputies conducted surveillance in the area, and were able to locate Honaker with the cell phone in his possession.

Deputies say Honaker confessed to making many of the calls. He was taken into jail on $14,000 bond.
