HENDERSON, NV (FOX5) -

A man who is accused with calling and hanging up on Henderson police's 911 system more than 3,600 times this year is expected to be released from custody.

According to Henderson Justice Courts, a criminal complaint for 35-year-old Tuy Thai was not filed in time for his initial court appearance, which was scheduled for Thursday.

Due to this, a court official said, Thai will be released from the Henderson Detention Center.

Police arrested Thai on Nov. 7 as part of a sting. The police department said Thai's cellphone called 911 a total of 59 times in the two days before he was arrested.

Thai denied he was making these calls, saying his phone was broken and it was dialing on its own, police said. He also claimed other people were using his phone.

Detectives observed him to make sure he was the only person using his phone.

Police stopped Thai after he left his house, asking him if he had an emergency which required assistance. He denied calling 911, later saying his phone was broken and dialed 911 by itself.

Police accused Thai of calling 911 more than 3,600 times in the past year.

Thai was booked into the Henderson Detention Center on 59 counts of unlawful use of 911.

Police have not said what they intend to do next following Thai's release.
