Irish Man Banned From Drinking Alcohol After Claiming to 999 He Was Nicki Minaj

He reportedly made the calls on Christmas Day.


An Irish man has been banned from drinking alcohol after he dialled 999 and claimed to be Nicki Minaj.

Steve Brown from Co Antrim reportedly dialled emergency services twice on Christmas Day. According to reports, Mr. Brown already has an ASBO which prohibits him from calling the 999 number.

However, his first call to 999 reportedly heard him claim that two men were threatening his life. The call was made at approximately 10.15am.

According to reports, he called the service again just five minutes later to cancel the previous call, and claimed that he was Nicki Minaj and that there was a poltergeist in his house.

In court, Judge Lord Justice Coghlin reportedly released him on bail of £250, banned him from possessing and consuming alcohol and from dialling 999 – except in the case of an emergency.

He was also put under a 10pm to 7am curfew by the court.
