BOGUS CALL


Man accused of making bogus 911 call for faster police response


A 57-year-old man called 911 this morning and told them a police officer was hurt to make Chicago police respond quicker to some sort of disturbance at his South Side home, authorities alleged.
The man, Tommy Boston, will have his day in court at 9 a.m. Jan. 27 after he was arrested for allegedly calling in the bogus report.
Boston, of the 700 block of East 92nd Place, was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct/filing a false police report.
Police said Boston called 911 about 6:25 a.m.and told a dispatcher that an officer was down. When police arrived, they discovered no officers were injured at the location.

They should increase the penalty for these calls. A misdemeanor will not stop these clowns. Make him shovel his snow. He'd never do it again.

  1. About 99% of these calls are bogus. Tired of hearing "he got a gun" at the end of every call. Lock them all up.
