A Chickamauga, Georgia, man is in the local lockup after being charged with misuse of 911 and filing a false report in Murfreesboro.

Twenty-six year old Desmond Clements was charged Saturday after calling 9-1-1 claiming that he was being held at gunpoint. Officer Phillip Simpson reports after being on the scene, he didn't observe a disturbance.

Clements told the officer he met another man through a mutual friend and went to his Lascassas Pike apartment to have sex, according to a police report. But, he told the officer when he changed his mind and asked to be taken back to where he was picked up the acquaintance refused to give him a ride.


After failing to receive a ride, Clements admitted to picking up a television and threatening to break it. When that didn't work, he said he called 9-1-1 to say he'd been kidnapped and was being held at gunpoint. There was a time during his conversation with dispatchers the other man was on the phone with police.

A search of the apartment and vehicle didn't turn up a firearm which allegedly proved he was not held at gunpoint. Clements was arrested for filing a false report and misuse of 9-1-1. A warrants check also revealed he was wanted on a theft charge. He was taken to the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center and booked on a 10-thousand dollar bond.
