Police: Bogus 911 Caller Blames Nicotine Fit
CLARKSVILLE, Tennessee (AP) Police in Tennessee say a man accused of making three bogus calls to 911 told them he was bored and anxious because he had not smoked a cigarette in two days.
Alex Lee Baker, 20, of Clarksville was charged with making the calls Sunday during a 35-minute stretch.
The first caller claimed to be a witness to a murder. The second claimed he had been stabbed, while the third said a woman had been killed and buried.
Police said Monday that all the calls originated from a phone owned by Baker, who remained jailed on $15,000 bond. A spokesman said Baker had not retained a lawyer.
