Man lied to 911 about baby in stolen car

A man who called 911 in Dallas Texas to report his car was stolen with his infant child inside is facing criminal charges for the call.

Police from Dallas and other cities spent several hours on Wednesday looking for Erick Zapeta's car and his child. But investigators said Zapeta loaned the car to someone he knew and then lied to police about the theft and child in order to get his car back.

Officers located the vehicle and the child, who police said was safe at home and had not been in the car. Zapeta faces a charge of false report to a police officer, a Class B misdemeanor. (info from NBC5)
