Columbus, GA (WTVM) - Revealing new details have been released from two 911 calls made on Monday, Jan. 9 by Hector Arreola.
Arreola is the Columbus man who encountered police that morning, and after being arrested, was sent to the hospital and died the next day.
The first call to emergency responders was at 3:40 a.m. when Arreola was inside a motel room at the Efficiency Lodge behind Midtown Shopping Center on Macon Road.
This is part of the conversation in that first call.
In that same call, Arreola tells the responder there may be more than one person outside.
The call continues for 8 more minutes. At that point, Arreola changes his request and pleads with 911 to send police to check on her mother, who lives on Moss Drive.
After 13 minutes on the phone, there's dead air and no conversation between Arreola and EMS.
He then calls responders back at 4:55 a.m. January 9, from his mother's home on Moss Drive.
After listening closely to the second call, the same responder who answered Arreola's first call reminded him that when police showed at the motel, he never came out to meet them.
According to the incident report, Arreola was arrested for disorderly conduct after calling 911 to request a welfare check for his mom.
At some point in his encounter with police, Arreola was handcuffed.
