Homeless people have it rough

Okay, most homeless people have it rough, but this guy seems to be the exception to the rule:
A homeless man who called 911 from the hot tub of a suburban Portland home and asked for towels, hot chocolate and a hug got arrested for trespassing instead.

Beaverton police say Mark Eskelsen called 911 from his cell phone, identified himself as "the sheriff of Washington County," and asked for medical help. He later admitted he wasn't the sheriff but informed the dispatcher he'd been "yelling for about an hour and a half."
Okay, first of all, since when do homeless people have cell phones? Secondly, needing the things he asked for are the least homeless-y (yeah, not a real word) things a homeless guy has probably ever asked for. Third, the owners of that hot tub (no, the homeless guy didn't have his own hot tub, in spite of all his other apparent advantages) should get it thoroughly cleaned.
