CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. — Police in Tennessee say a man accused of making three bogus calls to 911 told them he was bored and anxious because he had not smoked a cigarette in two days.

Twenty-year-old Alex Lee Baker of Clarksville was charged with making the calls Sunday during a 35-minute stretch.

The first caller claimed to be a witness to a murder. The second claimed he had been stabbed, while the third said a woman had been killed and buried.

Police said Monday that all the calls originated from a phone owned by Baker, who remained jailed on $15,000 bond. A spokesman said Baker had not retained a lawyer.
