This is exactly why I always listen to butt-dials. That, and occasional sex noises.

This is Larry Barnett from Jonesboro, Arkansas. He owns a used car business called Legend Motor Company. It gets bad reviews online. He also recently tried to hire someone to murder a former employee, which we know because during that process he butt-dialed his intended victim, who spent the next hour and a half listening to Barnett give the hired goon directions to the former employee's house. Naturally, that former employee, who is as yet unidentified, called the police and informed them that he was currently listening to his own murder being plotted.
Among the many delightful things the intended murder victim heard Barnett say was "I don't care if you have to burn his house to the ground with him in it. I don't care what you have to do, make it look like an accident." Sure enough, when police went to the former employee's house in neighboring Paragould, they found it had been burglarized and that the gas had been tampered with. It did not look like an accident. Barnett was arrested and faces a probable cause hearing today.
It had to happen eventually. It actually probably happens a lot, like a few months ago when a guy accidentally called 911 while plotting to kill a man who had wronged him at a Waffle House.
