Man criminally charged with harassing 911 dispatch in Fullerton

Criminal charges were filed on Tuesday against a 29-year-old Fullerton man accused of harassing 911 dispatch and attacking Fullerton police officers sent to investigate.

Authorities say Juan Delgadillo Jr. called 911 seven consecutive times between 12:09 a.m. and 1:02 a.m. Monday. When a dispatcher called back to ask if he had an emergency, he said, "yes," and
hung up, according to Fullerton Police Department.

When officers showed up at Delgadillo's doorstep in the 2400 block of Daphne Place to investigate, Delgadillo ran away from the officers, police said.

After the officers caught up with Delgadillo, he kicked and assaulted them while trying to detain him, according to police. He was eventually taken into custody.

A system check showed Delgadillo was wanted on two outstanding arrest warrants, officials said. According to a criminal complaint, he was convicted of robbery in Los Angeles County in May 2009.

Delgadillo is charged with a felony count of resisting arrest and single misdemeanor counts of making annoying or harassing calls to 911 and resisting arrest.
