Man to 911 center: 'Pigs on loose at grocery store'

They tied up an important phone line and annoyed dispatchers for weeks.

Dozens of prank calls all reporting fake emergencies.

But now, police have arrested the man they say just wouldn't stop calling the Montgomery County 911 dispatch center.

Police say Nicklas Ferren used an internet site to prank calls, using it to disguise his voice and block his phone number.

He called the dispatch center, claiming there were fires, shoot-outs, and even pigs running loose at a local grocery store.

Authorities finally got a court order to track where the calls were coming from.

Ferren was arrested but has since bonded out.

Ferren is facing misdemeanor charges in connection with this case.
