"Why won't you die?!"
After massively overreacting to a seeing spider in his house, Rhys Howard triggered a police response in Perth when a concerned passerby heard a toddler screaming and a man shouting death threats.
Now it has been revealed just how the arachnophobe's nightmare unfolded.
ABC News travelled to the man's house where he gave a play-by-play explanation of what happened.
"The two officers from Wanneroo Station more or less just laughed their asses off," said Snr Sgt Simon Hazell of the situation.
