    [MI] Man Arrested After Pocket-Dialing 9-1-1 and Talking About Murder Plans: BSO
    A Pompano Beach man is being held without bond on homicide charges after he pocket-dialed 9-1-1 while talking to someone about his murder plans, police said. Scott Simon, 24, was arrested Tuesday for the fatal May 5th shooting that left southbound lanes of I-95 closed for three hours in Oakland Park, according to a news release from the Broward Sheriff's Office. Melissa Hibbard, girlfriend of victim Nicholas Romondo Walker, comments.

    Desinor’s specific role in the murder is not being released, the sheriff’s office said.

    Their arrests came after Simon accidentally called 911. He can be heard on the recorded line saying he was going to follow 33-year-old Walker home and kill him, deputies said.

    Minutes after the call, Walker was shot and killed while driving his car onto the highway. He had previously gotten into an argument at a nearby Waffle House, the sheriff’s office said.

    When deputies arrived on scene, Walker's silver Buick had crashed into a guard rail on I-95 near Commercial Boulevard. He had already died of gunshot wounds by the time authorities put out a fire that had started in the engine compartment.
