A Florida man decided to call 911 to let them he was being chased by the police. He would go on to ask for Donald Trump stating “We made a deal” and that Trump was a close friend of his.
Thirty-three year-old Aric Frydberg was being chased by police over suspicion of marijuana possession which would then lead to a wild car chase.

He’s making 911 calls great again.
A Florida man being chased by police phoned 911 and asked a dispatcher to contact the White House so he could speak to his “close friend,” President Donald Trump.
“We made a deal,” marijuana suspect Aric Frydberg said of his relationship with the president during the bizarre emergency call early Tuesday.
The appeal didn’t work. Collier County sheriff’s deputies caught Frydberg, 33, after a seven-mile car chase. Despite his attempts to weasel out of trouble ― invoking Trump, blaming Jews and claiming his mother had been in an accident ― deputies booked him on charges that included aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer with violence, tampering with evidence, and possession of marijuana. He was jailed on $99,500 bail.
It all started when a deputy noticed a marijuana-like scent emanating from a vehicle parked in a post office parking lot. The officer looked inside the car and saw a baggie containing a green leafy substance. When he tried to confiscate the baggie, Frydberg allegedly grabbed it and stuffed it into his mouth, according to local station WINK.
Then Frydberg sped away and called 911.
“I need help, please,” Frydberg told the dispatcher. “There’s a police officer chasing me.”
The 911 operator repeatedly told Frydberg to pull over, but the fleeing driver had some requests, according to local station WFTX.
“Call my mom, call my mom,” he said. “Please call my mom.”
When that didn’t work, Frydberg pulled out his trump card.
“Donald Trump is a close friend of mine. We made a deal,” he said. Read the full story here.
Frydberg’s Facebook page states that he is in fact executive assistant to the CEO at Trump Financial in Miami, Florida., but something tells us that’s a bit doubtful.
