TUCSON - A man's distinct New York accent got him into trouble Wednesday when Pima County Sheriff's officials say he falsely reported to 911 that a deputy was involved in a physical fight.
At about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, deputies responded to a report, based on a 911 call, that a deputy that was involved in a fight with two other men at the intersection of Avra Valley Road and Anway Road, according to a news release from Pima County Sheriff's Department.
The deputy was at the intersection, but upon hearing the alarm tones, advised over the radio that he was fine and not involved in a fight.
Deputies determined that call was a hoax made from a 911-only phone. About 90 minutes before the call was made, deputies had made contact with a couple where the woman, 32-year-old Jennifer Golden, was arrested for Driving on a Suspended license, the release states. Daniel Golden, 34, had become belligerent with deputies, and they had refused a ride home after the vehicle was impounded.
Deputies asked that a recording of the hoax 911 call be sent to their smart phones and clearly identified him as the hoax caller based on his voice and New York accent, the release states. They responded to the couple's home and met with a family member, who also verified that the voice on the 911 call belonged to Golden.
While deputies were at his residence, Golden arrived and was taken into custody. He was charged with False Reporting to Law Enforcement and was booked into Pima County Jail.
