Are you going to be okay? Do you need us all to send you our cocoa? We can't have you going through withdrawal!!

Homeless Man Calls 911 From Hot Tub, Asks For Cocoa And A Hug:

‏BEAVERTON, Ore. A homeless man who called 911 from the hot tub of a suburban Portland home and asked for towels, hot chocolate and a hug got arrested for trespassing instead.

Beaverton police say Mark Eskelsen called 911 from his cell phone, identified himself as "the sheriff of Washington County," and asked for medical help. He later admitted he wasn't the sheriff but informed the dispatcher he'd been "yelling for about an hour and a half."

The man said in his Sunday morning call that he'd been in the water about 10 hours and his towels had gotten wet. As he put it, "I just need a hug and a warm cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows in it."

The Oregonian newspaper says arriving officers arrested Eskelsen for investigation of second-degree criminal trespass and improper use of 911.

Thanks for the report.
And btw...sounds like typical cocoa lovers behaviour when they're low on cocoa.
