Firefighter Arrested For Making False Calls

A South-Central Kentucky firefighter has been arrested after allegedly making false 911 calls because he was bored .

Eighteen-year-old Joshua Garmon is a member of the East Barren Volunteer Fire Dept. Garmon was charged July 15, 2007, with nine counts of falsely reporting an incident.

The false calls came from cell phones that don't work, except for emergency calls.

Detective Rusty Anderson said Garmon reportedly made false reports of fires and wrecks with injuries because he wanted to go on fire runs.
