TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — A 22-year-old Port Richey man may have just won the title 'Florida Man' for life.

According to police, Matthew Leatham was arrested early Sunday morning after he twice “called 911 to find a ride home, according to a court complaint which notes Leatham “cursed at the call taker during the call.”

The 22-year-old is easily identified by the tattoo of the state of Florida on his glabella, the area of your forehead, between your eyebrows and above your nose.

Leatham was charged with misuse of the 911 system as well as possession of marijuana.

Leatham was released from Pasco County Jail on a $300 bond.
