The Naples man had what he thought was a foolproof plan to get out of a ticket, police say — make a prank 911 call.
After being pulled over by a sheriff's deputy Tuesday, Rorech placed the emergency 911 from his cell phone, the police report showed, and reported there was a shooting in the area and a victim was on the ground, the Naples News reported.
The call was dispatched to the deputy, who dropped what he was doing to attend to the alleged more serious matter, the police report stated.

Unfortunately for Rorech, the police have heard of caller ID..

He realized that something was wrong. The deputy quickly retraced the call and got Rorech's voicemail.
Now instead of just a traffic ticket, Rorech was arrested for making a false 911 call.
