Bogus 911 caller blames nicotine fit
The man was bored and anxious because he hadn't smoked a cigarette in two days
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.
