It's the second such "pocket dialing leads to arrest" story in less than a month, and you have to admit, it makes one wonder a) what kind of cell phones these criminals are using, and b) why they don't use a belt holster.

Authorities say a Georgia man "pocket-dialed" 911. The dispatcher on the other end of the line overheard people discussing a drug deal. The call was made around 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning.

Col. Jeff Strickland said the dispatcher could overhear several people speaking about a drug deal involving prescription drugs.

A deputy was sent to a Gainesville Waffle House restaurant, from where the police determined the call originated. The deputy eventually found the cell phone in an employee's pocket.

Daniel Moore, 18, was charged with possession of hydrocodone and alprazolam tablets.

I absolutely love this stuff!

Send yourself to jail by offering yourself up on a sliver platter to law enforcement.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

If they were smart to begin with then they would not be buying and selling drugs........Maybe they need to go back to pay phones and beepers :)

Go Back? No, I don't think so. Society is hooked on tech and certainly forever. I still remember calling people and if they were already on a call, you just got a busy signal. Now the call goes through even when they're taking a dump. People can't imagine life without their cell phones.
