(Scroll down for video) A man who was furious that police were holding his drug money, made numerous back to back calls to ask for it, according to police in Florida.

The Clearwater Police Department said that they have arrested 24-year-old Michael Mott, after being accused of making 98 non-emergency calls to 911.

Mott has been charged with making harassing telephone calls.

He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail. If convicted, Mott could face up to 60 days in prison.

According to the police investigation, Mott called the 911 system 98 times on Monday.

Mott used two different phones, complaining that he wanted his money back that had been seized as evidence during a drug arrest.

He even made a couple of the calls in front of an officer.

“He tied up valuable resources and telephone lines that are meant to help Clearwater citizens in need,” police said in a statement.

Mott claimed that since the drugs charges were not being pursued, police should have returned his money, and therefore, he called them 98 times within 6 hours to get his cash back.
