Last week, police officers in Willowbrook, Illinois received an emergency phone call at 4 a.m. from a man who allegedly “wanted to see an officer because he wanted to fight with them.”

John R. Pacella is the man in question. He was not kidding when he made the phone call because as soon as police arrived at his door he began to push and shove the officers. He was arrested immediately.


Pacella, after being booked at DuPage County Jail, is still being held on $100,000 bail. He was charged with aggravated battery, resisting a police officer, and battery with intent to provoke or insult. Pacella is also a registered sex offender.

According to a website that tracks neighborhood safety data, including a list of registered sex offenders, has John Rocco Pacella from Willowbrook, Illinois listed. Willowbrook’s record includes ‘Indecent Solicitation of a Child.’

This is not the first time authorities received bogus 911 calls either. In April, a man called 911 and reported a fake shooting while he was being pulled over for speeding. He was hoping he would not be issued a ticket as officers responded to the fake shooting.
