A 16-year-old has been arrested in Brooklyn for making over 400 false 911 calls since last May. A police source who spoke to the New York Post said that Dean Whylie frequently reported "police officers needing assistance, shots fired, motor vehicle accidents and disputes."
Whylie reportedly pretended to be a woman when making the calls, and the bulk of his 404 phone calls were traced back to his home in Flatbush. He allegedly used two phones that were only set up for emergency use. One phone, which was used to make 186 calls, was found.
Less than a month ago, a man was arrested for making hundreds of bogus 911 calls complaining about hipsters in his Williamsburg neighborhood.
