Hoax gets local man in trouble with police

-A A +A

Prank call leads to officials responding to what they believed to be a shooting

By Calen McKinney

It all started with a phone call.

Jerry Hayden was at his Shofner Road home on June 25 when the phone rang. It was a dispatcher from the Campbellsville/Taylor County E-911 Center who wanted to know what was going on inside his home.

"I said, 'There's not a thing going on.'"

Hayden said the dispatcher said there were Taylor County Sheriff's deputies outside his home and he needed to walk outside.
