Man who called 911 about shooting, really wanted quiet

A man from Manchester, New Hampshire faces charges after allegedly telling 911 dispatchers that he shot someone. Police say Jimmy Tyler called 911 Friday night identifying himself as "Mister T." When police responded to his home, they evacuated the apartment building and shut down the road.

It turns out Tyler was frustrated with a loud party next door and wanted a quicker response from police. He is charged with making a false report to law enforcement and is in jail on $2,500 cash bail. Police say he has a criminal history of theft and assault. (info from WMUR TV)
