TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Deputies arrested a man Wednesday after he called 911 with a false report.
Deputy Tom Peine with the Pima County Sheriff's Department tells KGUN9 that deputies impounded a couple's vehicle after the woman, Jennifer Golden, was arrested for driving on a suspended license.
The man, Daniel Golden, was belligerent with deputies during the encounter, and the pair refused a ride home by deputies.
While talking with the man, deputies noticed a distinct New York accent.
A short while later, deputies started hearing alarm tones over their radios, telling them that a deputy was involved in a physical fight with two men. The information was based on a 911 call.
Deputies arrived at the area where they believed the fight was occurring but all officers and deputies were accounted for and unharmed.
Deputies then determined that the 911 call was a hoax and asked for a copy of the call after learning that 911 caller was a man.
They reviewed the call, and those deputies who had spoken with Daniel Golden earlier clearly identified the voice and the accent.
Deputies then went to the couple's home and met a family member who also clearly identified Daniel Golden's voice.
Golden arrived at the home while deputies were still there and was taken into custody and charged with false reporting to law enforcement.
