A Tennessee man was arrested after butt-dialing 911 last week because dispatchers overheard him talking about getting high and going to a drug dealer’s house, police said.

Dispatchers traced the location of 25-year-old Grant O’Connor’s call to a Don Pepe’s Mexican Restaurant in Mt. Pleasant, Tenn., where he and a female friend were having dinner, the ABC affiliate reports. Police said they searched his car and found a bag of marijuana and drug paraphernalia under the passenger seat where O’Conner was sitting. O’Connor was charged with simple possession.

O’Connor had no idea he had accidentally called 911 in Don Pepe’s until officers told him, police said.
