Ohio Man Reports Fake Shooting To Get Out of Traffic Ticket
Man allegedly calls 9-1-1 and reports a shooting in an attempt to distract the police officer who is pulling him over.
The South Euclid Police Department proved to be far too smart for a Cleveland Heights man that thought he had a brilliant idea. 34-year-old Muhammad Kabir of Cleveland Heights allegedly called 9-1-1 to report a shooting as he was getting pulled over by local law enforcement. Spoiler alert, there was no shooting. It didn't take long for the South Euclid Police to figure out what was really going on according to a police report obtained by thesmokinggun.com,
A police dispatcher was able to ping the caller of the 911 call back to Walmart, and the phone number of the 911 caller matched the male that was on the traffic stop.
Why would he go to such ridiculous lengths to avoid a traffic stop? Apparently, the suspect was driving with a 2-year-old boy who was not in a car seat. Oh yeah, he was also driving with a suspended license. Now Kabir is facing multiple traffic violations along with making false alarms.
