HARRINGTON, Del.- Authorities say a guest staying at a Harrington motel is facing charges for  repeatedly calling 911 from his room.

Harrington police said that on three separate occasions Friday, April 12, officers responded to 911 disconnects from a room at the Super 8 Motel on the 17000 block of South DuPont Highway. Officers said they met with the guest, identified as 61-year-old Alan J. Zihal of Dover, and determined that he had called 911 for non-emergency reasons and then disconnected from the 911 dispatchers.

After responding to Zihal's room for the third time, officers took Zihal into custody and charged with three counts of malicious Interference with emergency communications. He was then ordered held in the Sussex Correctional Institute in default of $1,500 secured bond.
