Bored fireman arrested for fake 911 calls

A volunteer firefighter in south-central Kentucky was arrested after allegedly making false 911 calls because he was bored.

Joshua Matthew Garmon, a member of the East Barren Volunteer Fire Department, was charged last summer with nine counts of falsely reporting an incident. The false calls came from cellphones that don't work anymore except for emergency 911 calls, Detective Rusty Anderson said.

Anderson said Garmon allegedly made false reports of fires and wrecks with injuries because he wanted to go on fire runs. (info from Glasgow Daily Times)
