New Jersey Man Allegedly Calls 911 From His Pillow Fort, Demands To Speak To Tim Tebow

From the Hopatcong Patch comes the strange story of one man and his desire to speak with Tim Tebow. I'll let the lead from the article, which is one of the best leads I've ever read, set the table for you:

A Hopatcong man told police he was the president looking speak to Tim Tebow, and officers found him hiding under pillows and clothes in his mom's closet, police said.

So, there's that. According to police, 28-year-old Jason Slater made multiple 911 calls on June 10, in which he refused to tell the dispatcher who he was or what exactly he wanted.


Police say Slater went on to call the Hopatcong police department's direct number, told them that he was the "president," and demanded to speak to Tim Tebow. Police were able to trace the number to Slater's mother's house, and when they arrived there they found him hiding in his mother's closet, police said.

Deadspin feels for you, Jason Slater, as we've had our own issues trying to get some one-on-one time with Tim Tebow. Alas, some things just aren't meant to be.


Oh, and here's the kicker from the article:

After Slater was released, he threw his summons complaint to the ground outside of the department, police said. He was warned to pick it up, police said. Then he grabbed it and threw it back on the ground by Dunkin Donuts on Hopatchung Road, police said.

Officer Paul Barta then charged Slater with littering, police said.
