False Report Lands Feline Lover In Hot Water

A Tennessee teenager is in big trouble after calling 911 to report a false fire, because he wanted help retrieving his cat that was stuck in a tree.

The false report tied up multiple agencies responding to what they thought was a fire Monday at the home of 18-year-old Trevor Austin Lane.

His cat had been stuck in the tree overnight, and he figured the fire department’s “big ladders” would be of use.

He was charged with a 911 violation and jailed on $1,500 bond.

Dispatchers would have connected Lane with the appropriate resources had he been honest.
