Man was arrested for three fake 911 calls and went to Al Capone's jail

Yesterday, police in Bartlett, Illinois announced the arrest of a man who they said made three false 911 calls, including one Friday about an armed robbery. Kelly Williams was arrested Friday and charged with three felony counts of disorderly conduct.

Authorities say Williams called police and reported a man with a gun near his home, and that he'd made two similar phone calls with false reports the last two months. Police continue to investigate the motive.

Williams was taken to Cook County Jail and awaits a bond hearing. In 1931, mobster Al Capone was sent to the same jail, but not for crank calls. (info from The Daily Herald and the FBI)
