WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) — A local man was booked into jail on charges that he called 911 over 80 times for non-emergency reports and threatening topics.
According to the police report, Warren Police Department dispatch received 30 calls one day and over 80 calls on another day from the same phone number from Aug. 11 to Aug. 13.
