HACKETTSTOWN - Police say a drunken man twice called 911 to report a fake accident because he wanted officers to give him a ride home.

Hackettstown police say the initial call from the 38-year-old man came in around 6:50 p.m. Tuesday, around the same time the department received a domestic violence call. Some officers who were headed to that call instead were diverted to the reported accident.

Before officers arrived at the alleged crash scene, the man called 911 again and asked the dispatcher "where the police were."

When officers arrived on scene, they could not find a crash. But they soon located the man and determined that he had called 911 because he wanted a ride home.

The man was charged with falsely calling 911 and improper behavior.
