Cops: Man dialed 911 during drug deal

Police in Idaho Falls, Idaho, say an Oregon man accidentally dialed 911 while making an alleged drug deal that was overheard by dispatchers. The Post-Register reports that (http://goo.gl/Zv0OsB) Lawan Sanders, of Portland, is accused of several drug-related charges stemming from the Sept. 27 incident. He has a preliminary hearing Oct. 23. Court records show dispatchers overheard three men talking about selling drugs. They triangulated the call and officers arrived at the location to find three men standing by a car/Associated Press. More here.

Question: Is there something Darwinian going on here?
