Man looking for a "hot chick" rings N.Y. police

The Associated Press

CANDOR, New York- A man who called emergency authorities because he wanted to see a "hot chick" instead saw the inside of a jail cell.

Tyler Engelhard, 21, was charged with falsely reporting an incident after calling emergency services on Tuesday and told a dispatcher his parents "should be in jail" and that police would "find out why" when they arrived at his home, police said.

A sheriff's patrol rushed to the home and found Engelhard, who said he called as a joke and told the deputy - a woman - he just wanted to see a "hot chick."

Lt. Richard Travis said Engelhard did not explain why he thought a call to emergency services was the way to meet a woman.

He was held in the county jail on $1,000 (euro795) bail.
